This case study of a preschool boy with Asperger's syndrome focuses on the use of video instruction for the purpose of teaching skills required for participation in classroom activities. After the classroom teacher identified four skill areas needing improvement (circle time, sharing, choosing centers, and singing), short video clips of instructions and role plays were created using a digital camera. The clips were viewed by the subject on a daily basis for eight weeks prior to selected activities. To document the effect of using the video instruction, observation notes were collected and a teacher survey was completed. Information gleaned from the observations and the survey revealed that the student responded positively to the video instruction, increasing the variety of activities he participated in. (Contains 4 videoclips.)
