Deficits in social communication and interaction have been identified as distinguishing impairments between the normal students and the ones with learning disabilities. The successful development of social communication and interaction in individuals with ASD is a lifelong objective. This study was done to check the effectiveness of a packaged intervention including point-of-view video modeling in teaching social initiation skills to children with ASD.

Point-of-view VM has the potential to address these deficits. By presenting only what a person might see from his or her viewpoint, it may be more effective than other forms of VM, in limiting irrelevant stimuli and providing a clear frame of reference to facilitate imitation. The current study investigated the use of point-of-view VM in teaching social initiations.

The study concluded through its findings that the point-of-view VM is a promising intervention for increasing greetings. However, both generalization and maintenance were limited. Despite the limitations of the study and variable results, there are a number of implications moving forward for both practitioners and future researchers examining point-of-view modeling.
