The key to helping your ASD child may be right in your pocket!
Help your child to learn new skills and overcome existing barriers quickly and independently, regardless of age or ability. Video modeling is an effective method of teaching that uses recorded videos and technology. With repetitive and consistent exposure to video models, success stories include:
- A child who would not brush his teeth
- A teenager being acclimated to a new work environment
- A four-year-old who has not developed proper play-skills
- A child who would not engage with her teachers in class
And so much more!
