The purpose of this study was to evaluate both video modeling and observational learning to teach age-appropriate recreation and leisure skills to students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Results were evaluated via a multiple probe design across participants for video modeling and across participants and behaviors for observational learning. Participants included 4 children with autism, ages 8 to 11, who were served in self-contained special education classrooms. Results indicated video modeling was effective for teaching chained tasks, across students; observational learning occurred for at least some steps across students. Results and future implications are discussed.
