Training With Video Modeling to Conduct Preference Assessments: A Systematic Review

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,9
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 6: Recent Developments in Assessment and Research

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. become knowledgeable of research using video models to train caregivers to conduct stimulus preference assessments (SPAs).
  2. understand critical training features associated with improved caregiver performance in conducting SPAs.
  3. understand features of VMs associated with improved caregiver performance in conducting SPAs.

Description

Stimulus preference assessments (SPAs) refer to various empirically supported procedures used to identify stimuli likely to function as reinforcers for children. The current study is a systematic review of the literature examining the effects of video modeling (VM) to train caregivers to conduct SPAs. Studies included in the review are evaluated across multiple indices (e.g., participant demographics, variations of VM procedures, outcomes measured). Implications for applied practice and directions for future research are discussed.
