This week in social group we created video scavenger hunts. The group split into two and each came up with a list of things for the other team to capture on video. Some of the items included "Say something nice to the person on your right" and "work together to create an obstacle course".
Video is a particularly good medium for children on the autism spectrum or with ADHD. A study by Corbett & Abdullah (2005), found video feedback effective because it plays to the strengths of children who express:
- over-selective attention (making them very prone to distraction)
- restricted field of focus
- preference for visual stimuli and visually cued instruction
- avoidance of face-to-face interactions
- ability to process visual information more readily than verbal information
Do any of these sound familiar?
