Video of the Week: Using Video Modeling

Video modeling is an empirically supported intervention strategy  hat more of us could be using in our clinical work. This week we feature some examples of video modeling for  some common communication behaviors. We love the fact that  these focus on  adults. Kudos to the team at Villa Esperanza Speech and Language Center  for making and sharing these videos.

    Yes, a great reminder of the power of video to teach. It would appear to be easy to set up and these examples. Althought I am not sure what they were doing at ‘work’ and that the point of the video is the communicative intent, but I would say that the work looked fairly boring and not really functional. There are many jobs like that and the students may have been attentive to their jobs for an extended period. Just noticing. Perhaps instead of taping many examples of the same request in the same setting, it would be helpful to show many examples of the same request with a variety of jobs or in a variety of situations. I’m so glad to have joined your email list as I am learning an awful lot. Thanks for all you do.

      Thanks for stopping by, Gale, and taking the time to comment. One of the things that we love about video modeling is that you can make the models to suit your exact purpose. Maybe their clients did best by seeing different people communicating the same thing in the same task, but, as you mention, that’s not the only way to do it. Getting samples in a variety of work environments would work well for some folks-good suggestion!
