This study evaluated the effectiveness of using point-of-view video modeling and relational response questioning to teach perspective taking skills to a second grade student with Asperger's disorder. The student showed significant deficits in the ability to share with his classmates and with a younger sibling. Three baseline collection periods were held in which the participant was asked to share a food item and a toy with his five year old sibling to analyze sharing deficits. Sharing is an integral function of perspective taking skills. The intervention was a personalized point-of-view video using the subjects five year old sister as a model. This video was used as an intervention daily for a five day period. Data and rate of occurrence of the target behavior of sharing was collected. Point-of-view video modeling used with a relational response question proved to be an effective technique in increasing the perspective taking skills of a seven year old student diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
