We evaluated a video prompting and fading procedure for teaching three adults
with developmental disabilities to wash dishes. Video prompting involved showing
video clips depicting each step of the task. All three adults reached 90–100%
correct when video prompting was implemented. Following acquisition, video
prompting was withdrawn, but performance deteriorated. Subsequently, a 3-step
fading procedure was implemented in which the separate video clips were merged
to form larger, multi-step segments of video. Performance reached 80–100% correct
as the video prompts were re-applied and then faded. Performance decreased
at the 3-month follow-up when prompting was removed, but stabilized at 80–90%
correct when the third step in the fading sequence was reinstated. These data
suggest a promising approach for fading video prompts.
