Video Prompting

Video prompting is a form of video modelling in which the participant is shown a video clip of one step of the task and then given the opportunity to complete that step before the next step is shown.

The video prompts are often filmed from the perspective of the participant and thus have a subjective viewpoint.

The supporters of video prompting claim that it has been used to teach a wide variety of social and functional skills, such as how to interact with other people or how to buy things.

They also claim that video prompting can be used to to teach an individual how to apply previously learnt behaviours and skills in new settings.
