Abstract

This study’s purpose was to identify the effects of video modeling in a group, using the target behaviors of appropriate play and independent cleaning. The participants within the study were a group of preschool special education students. The disabilities and behaviors represented within the group varied. This study was an action research study with an A-B-A design. Data were recorded to obtain the frequency of redirection needed during playing and cleaning, the duration of playing and cleaning, and the number of independent cleaners. The quantitative data were analyzed through the graphical representation of the data. Anecdotal observations were analyzed to determine the effects on the individuals of the group. The results reported that there were both positive and negative changes. There was a decrease in redirection during play, an increase in redirection during cleaning, an increase in the amount of time spent cleaning, and an increase in independent cleaners.
