Video Modeling 2 Building Thomas and Diesel

Video modeling is essential for Visual Autistic kids to learn how to play, play skills is very important for social learning and even is so hard for them to want to doesn't mean they can't. They have to be thought to play the same way we are trying to teach other things for them, but if we want them to interact with people and learn social rules and how to deal with life we have to try to teach play skills and video modeling for sure has it way to improve that.
I hope these series help the parents to know how to do that with the toys you have at home.

Video Modeling 1 Blocks Farm

Video Modeling is something we are starting to do for my son, it's my try to help him to learn how to play and acquire play skills, in his case I think we have a good shot because he is so visual and really like videos.
Many published articles have been written about some studies with video modeling with many successful stories. The research is not in grand scale yet but I think this technique is really valid and it doesn't cost anything to try. Video Modeling is used a lot to teach also social skills.
I have a professional ABA and PHD in Special Needs help me with it.  I can't wait to do more and start using them.

At first I'm using blocks my son has a really hard time using them, no wonder, blocks are fun but you have to have pretend play skills and imagination to use it. So to even get he started I'm starting with this great set from Lego which I did a review before.

I did a video modeling for the book but I won't show because copyright issues with the book, I'm really not sure if you can show contents of a book in the internet. But later I will show how you can record that.
