Study conducted to investigate the effectiveness of a video-based self-help skills intervention for elementary school students with mental disabilities. Three students participated in the videotaped intervention, which presented oral and visual directions on how to perform three self-help skills: (1) cleaning sunglasses, (2) putting on a wristwatch, and (3) zipping a jacket. The researchers measured the percentage of steps of the task analyses performed correctly before and after a video model prompt. Quantitative data is presented in table format. Results indicate that similar interventions have the potential to teach self-help skills to students with mental disabilities.
