Autism is a neurobiological and developmental disorder characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication. Many children with autism tend to show little ability to use their language in social contexts and have difficulty expressing their wants and needs. It is important to teach language and social skills to students with autism in order for them to be able to communicate with others. Video modeling is an intervention used by professionals to teach language and communication skills to children with autism. The present study utilized video modeling to teach requesting assistance to a child with autism. The video consisted of ten scenarios that demonstrated requesting assistance and used both adults and peers as a model. Video modeling was effective in promoting requesting assistance in a child with autism and generalized to a setting not associated with teaching.
