The purpose of this study was to trial a procedure involving point-of-view video modeling, backward chaining and reinforcement to teach a child with ASD to write her name. Video modeling and reinforcement were used to teach letter writing, and backward chaining to produce the complete name. A multiple baseline across behaviors design treating each letter as a different behavior established the effectiveness of the procedure for teaching letter writing and generalization data suggest the efficacy of backward chaining in teaching production of her name. Treatment integrity was satisfactory and a post-intervention questionnaire indicated the intervention was acceptable to the participant s mother. These findings suggest that point-of-view video modeling in combination with backward chaining and reinforcement may be an effective tool for teaching new academic skills.
