The use of video modeling (VM) and video self-modeling (VSM) to increase compliance, improve targeted behaviors, and assist with transitions has been proven successful for children at varying developmental levels. This study’s purpose was to identify early childhood staff perspectives on the use of VM as a tool for increasing pro social interactions, compliance, and participation for preschoolers with disabilities in the general education setting. A survey research design was chosen to gather the perceptions and opinions of early childhood team members with varying roles and educational levels and included data collection that was both qualitative and quantitative in nature. This case study explored one school district’s inclusive early childhood program where children with special needs participate in the general education setting supported by special education staff. Results of this study indicated that early childhood team members agree that VM is an effective technique for increasing student success with transitions and participation in the early childhood classroom.
