She will also show how to add frequency building (i.e., a systematic practice procedure resulting in fluency) to video prompting. Dr. Wertalik will share videos and data from participants in a recent experimental study showing the dramatic effects of combining video prompting and frequency building.
What webinar participants will learn:
The basics of video prompting.
The difference between first and third person point of view for video-based instruction.
Skills and behaviors amenable to video prompting.
