CASE STUDY ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A VIDEO STORY-BASED INTERVENTION WITH SELF-MODELING TREATMENT PACKAGE TO REDUCE STEREOTYPICAL SPITTING BEHAVIOR IN A YOUNG GIRL WITH AUTISM
The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of a video story-based intervention with self-modeling to decrease spitting behavior in a female pre-school student with autism during an extended school year services program. An A-B-A-B design was used to demonstrate a functional relation between a video story-based intervention with self-modeling and decreased spitting behavior. The results showed that spitting behavior decreased as a result of the video-based intervention package. The implications of these results will be explored.
