Objective: Many studies have evaluated the effectiveness of video modeling in teaching daily living skills to students with disabilities, with a few focused-on students with intellectual disabilities without a comorbid condition. This study reviews three studies that used video modeling as a stand-alone intervention to teach students with intellectual disabilities without a secondary disability daily living skills. Method: Academic Search Complete, Educational Resource Center, APA PsycInfo, and MEDLINE database were searched to identify publications from 2010 to Sept 2020. Results: Three studies were included in this review based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, which found video modeling effective in improving daily living skills activities. In all the three reviewed literature, the authors found video modeling to help students with their assigned task. Conclusion: Video modeling can be used as an instructional strategy to teach individuals with intellectual disabilities to perform a target task to live independently without caregiver support.
