Editorial Reviews

'The studies demonstrate the authors' commitment to a thorough understanding of the technology of learning that takes place in the use of video modelling as well as their passion for putting the technology to use to serve people with autism.'- American Psychological Association (APA) Review of Books'Learning outcomes are explicit and achieved and one is left in little doubt of the value of this form of modelling in the promotion of social skills in children with autism. It is refreshing to see the researched evidence for its success and to appreciate a step by step guide in the setting up, establishing and assessment of its effectiveness.'- Accord Magazine'This is a book which would be of interest to those who are engaged in work with children and autism and those who are comfortable with the use of creative tools/the third dimension in their work.'- Accord Magazine
