One of the main challenges for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability in seeking and securing employment is their social skills. While many studies have investigated different methods to enhance their social skills, there is limited research on the usage of Video Modelling as social skills intervention for this group. This study investigated the effect of Video Modelling for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability on social behaviours in an employment setting. Results show that there was an immediate increase in target behaviours when video modelling was used. However, improvements in the target behaviour were not maintained. Due to multiple limitations, results for this study are inconclusive, but it is worthy to further investigate video modelling as an intervention for social skills in future studies.
