This video provides explicit instruction on proper use of eye contact in social communication. The video includes narration with added subtitles to emphasize important content. Research was conducted at Marquette University using this video as well as four others in a compilation to create a social communication training video. In the case study, results showed use of video modeling correlated to an increase in knowledge and/or application of some social communicative behaviors such as whole body listening, eye contact, adding details in responses, and avoiding tangents and interruptions. Results of the study were presented as a poster at the American Speech-Language Hearing Association Convention in 2017. This video may be used for school-aged children and older. It is a resource applicable to children and adults who struggle with social communication and can be used with many clients. Unfortunately, the sound for the narration is much louder than the sound during the conversation. I have not been able to rectify this, and I do apologize.
