Here’s an example of a video model I did for Joe of pointing and labelling. He took to it like a fish to water. It was more an experiment at the time as I videoed it in first-person (using the lense like he’s see it through his eyes). He hasn’t seen this video for some time but saw the poster again this morning and hadn’t forgotten any of the names! I’ve attached just the video of Joe demonstrating what he’d learnt. When I work out how to attach the demo video I’ll attach that too. He was 3 1/2 when I filmed this (about 6 months ago).
Sky’s the limit, you can do this as an instructional video for any toy or puzzle or even reading a book! Using it as an opportunity to create language and purposeful play. It may be a version of ‘scripting’ at first but the ideas they link together from this are amazing, and the fine motor skills (especially with puzzles).
Because these guys are such strong visual learners I’ve found whatever Joe has learned via video modelling in the first person he has retained amazingly and given us so much to build on.
What the…?! Yes, they’ve invented the three-sided toothbrush for adults/kids with sensory issues! Less time in the mouth and less brushing… I’m still yet to try it as mine are in the mail, but it makes sense.
Here the link if you want to have a look-see….
Three Sided Toothbrush Special Needs – Adult/Child Toothbrush
Let us know if you’ve had one or how you go if you try one 🙂
Here’s the new and improved version, getting clearer and clearer. I think I got a few hand movements in there too! Lol Loving it!
Here is a link to the new ‘Intro video’ that Neuro-Fit has just put together. It explains how the program works, better and far more simply than I can put it. I just know the benefits we have seen in every area that the spectrum affects. We are on our second 3-month course, the first one was so beneficial we thought we’d do another 🙂
There are clinics in L.A. and Brisbane Australia (where we attend).

Joe caught me by surprise the other day, re-enacting on of his Gemiini videos in his reflection of the window. Once again, proof of the video modelling/mirror combo at work! He’s saying ‘I am going to jump, I am jumping, i jumped.’ Next video, I wasn’t quick enough as he then said, ‘I am going to walk, I am walking, I walked’ but I only caught the last two. I was barely containing my excitement as you can imagine 😆
