Children with autism may benefit from watching videos of their proper interactions with others, according to research in two Pennsylvania districts. Educators film children while prompting them to act appropriately, then edit out the prompts and show the video to the children until they master the skill. "This is a great technique," said Ann Huang, an assistant professor at Duquesne University's School of Education. "It's a very, very effective way of teaching children with autism the appropriate behaviors. We should be promoting this technique more in classrooms."
