Lights! Camera! Autism! 2: Using Video Technology to Support New Behavior
“Lights! Camera! Autism! 2 will help educators and parents alike, and support an environment that is proactive and based on each individual’s strengths and needs. The solutions are proven to be successful. I couldn’t wait to go back to my district and share the book with staff and parents.”—Brian Johnson, Student Services Director, Columbus School District, Columbus, Wisconsin.
“There is something powerful that happens when the brain gets to watch the body doing something right. The learning sinks in. New behavior sets up with speed. McGinnity, Hammer and Ladson provide concrete examples for helping people ‘see’ better ways to behave by showing us concretely how to improve our instruction.”—David Pitonyak, Ph.D., consultant for people with challenging behaviors and the needs of their friends, family and caregivers (www.dimagine.com).
“These videos offer an innovative way of training people with special needs to encounter new situations. One of the many challenges people with autism and other disabilities face is how to encounter the ‘unknown’ and generalize social rules across situations. Video is a great platform to help a person understand what a new environment will be like, whether it be a new school, a camping trailer, or a playroom.”—Stephen Hinkle, national speaker and disability rights advocate.
