Video modeling is a form of observational learning in which desired behaviors are learned by watching a video demonstration and then imitating the behavior. The goal of the videos is for people to watch them and attempt the task at the same time, increase independence and reducing the need for support and verbal prompts from someone else.
A total of 18 tasks are modeled to help increase independence for daily living skills, such as toothbrushing, buttoning, handwashing, washing dishes, etc. Each video has three versions â€“ one with the video, audio, and text, one with video and text, and one with video and audio â€“ all to ensure all learning styles can benefit.
The videos were created through a grant from the Maine Community
Foundation and a collaboration with Dr. Tim Rogers from Eastern Maine
Counseling and Testing Services. They were filmed by James Tornatore
