Watch Me Learn successfully and rapidly teaches children skills across all different areas of functioning through video modeling.
Watch Me Learn teaches children with autism, speech and language disorders and other developmental delays.
Watch Me Learn works because it is a visual teacher that engages learners to watch and learn. The scenarios allow them to interact with the video and immediately perform the skills taught. Visit About Our Products to learn more.
“There hasn’t been a day yet where I haven’t seen my students demonstrate something they have learned from these Videos.”

Video modeling works! Video modeling is a scientifically proven method of effective teaching. Not only does video modeling teach, it is very easy to use because kids love it and are naturally attracted to it.
Video teaching or more commonly called video modeling is a visual teaching method that occurs by watching a video of someone modeling a behavior or skill and then imitating the behavior/skill watched.
The fact that video modeling can teach almost anything is one of the most beneficial aspects to it. The possibilities using video modeling are endless. If you can do a skill, then you can show it on video and you can incorporate this into almost any lesson with other teaching methods and other skills.
Children with autism and other developmental delays are more visual learners than auditory. Showing them a video is a much more productive method of teaching than telling them how to do it. This is true for a number of reasons but reasons aside, it is a proven success and the children love it. The goal of Video Modeling is to be a successful teacher and the results speak for themselves.
Teaching skills to children with autism or developmental delays is an overwhelming task. Anyone involved in this teaching, needs to have the most effective teaching materials and methods available to them.
Effective teaching is proven to be the teaching that incorporates a multi-sensory approach. Video modeling provides this. It is not usually sufficient to tell a disabled child how to do something, but requires you to show them how to do it, do it with them and practice it. This manner of teaching has a substantially higher level of skill mastery.
Additionally, teaching skills is most effective when skills are taught within the context of real-life. This scenario provides the greatest teaching opportunity, allows multiple skills to be taught at once and provides for accelerated skill acquisition and generalization.
At Monash University in Australia, an independent scientific study was conducted to determine whether the use of Watch Me Learn videos would enhance learning for children with autism.
This study was done by Caroline de Fina as a fulfillment to her PhD. and was conducted under the supervision of faculty. Monash University is ranked in the top 100 universities in the World.
Conclusion of the study proved the hypothesis to be correct; that including Watch Me Learn video modeling significantly increased treatment effectiveness. Watch Me Learn video modeling outperformed direct teaching alone, generalization master criteria was reached much sooner and skill maintenance was achieved.
In addition to proving the hypothesis, additional findings and benefits were revealed. These findings include but are not limited to the ease of use, minimal professional involvement, teaching model for parents as well as children and increased expessive language.

Watch Me Learn is the best evidence based Video teaching program for children with autism, Pdd, Pdd-nos, speech delays and other developmental delays.
We claim to be the best because our engaging videos teach skills across many areas of functioning including language, social behavior, play, emotion, academics and adaptive skills all while children are having so much fun they don’t even realize they are learning!
Children learn real life skills from Watch Me Learn. This gives them the ability to easily complete the learned tasks in their lives. When our learners use these tasks in their lives, their self esteem soars and they want to learn more! Successful learners want to learn more and more.
Watch Me Learn actively strives to engage our learners in our fun scenarios that are typical to children. These scenarios are easily reenacted in real life and gives our learners the opportunity to put their new skills to use immediately. This immediate reinforcement is a huge reward to our learners!
Teaching within these dynamic real-life scenarios, viewers are captivated and they want to keep watching and learning. As a result, learning is accelerated and our learners develop a sense of self and self esteem. Self esteem gives them confidence and the desire to learn more. This is the foundation upon which future skills are built!

Teaching within real life makes Watch Me Learn a great teacher!
This is the essence of what makes Watch Me Learn so successful..... we are real people teaching real children within real life. Children learn to be children and therefore become comfortable with themselves and send self-esteem soaring! Then the real learning and fun begin!
Watch Me Learn is the only video modeling series available that teaches within real life settings. This capitalizes on the opportunity to teach multiple skills at once within natural settings. Our viewers immediately relate to the children models and what they are doing. The result is faster skill acquisition, greater number of skills and generalization!
