VSM Super-Trouper Professionals
About the Course
VSM Super-Trouper Professionals is a 5.5-hour course that runs once a term, online with three 1.5 hour sessions one week apart plus a 1 hour - 1:1 session with Anthea.
The next course runs on Wednesday, August 11th, 18th and 25th 2021 at 4 pm - 5.30 pm
Who is this course for?
This course is for allied health and therapy professionals, support workers, or tutors who want to join my team of recommended professionals to work directly with families making VSM’s. I do not have the time or capacity to work directly with all the families that ask me, so I am building a team of skilled professionals I can confidently recommend to deliver quality VSM services through NDIS or privately.
VSM Intervention Skillset
You will learn all the basics of making powerful VSM’s. We will look at the history, the theories, and research behind it, see real samples of true stories, learn about task analysis, storyboarding, video making, editing, and how to use Video Self Modelling to rapidly change behaviours. This course also includes the content of the VSM Easy-Peasy Basics course.
Additionally, you will also learn about complex behaviours, how to work with the functional cause of the behaviour, data collection, and evidence-based practices beyond Video Self Modelling. This work is grounded in Behaviourist theory and has been successful with complex communication, sensory, and emotional regulation behaviours.
Because you believe that your work can make a real difference. Perhaps you work with tricky kids and are looking for new ways, have heard of Video Self Modellings possibility and want to be able to bring it to your kids through your modality. VSM is used by speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and support workers.

Who’s a Tricky Child?
Your child either goes to a Special School or needs significant support at their school to learn.
You have an NDIS plan or require supported care?
Perhaps they have Autism, an ID, significant communication, behavioural or sensory needs that really make life hard sometimes.
What can I use VSM to teach?
I have seen VSM teach skills from sleeping, toileting, self-care, social skills, getting dressed, communicating, use AAC, eating different food, sitting at the table, play skills, sharing, waiting, asking for help, speaking, walking, ride a bike, cook, have a shower, brush their teeth, feed themselves.
And this is just the beginning!
Is it safe?
Video Self Modelling is an evidence-based practice which means there is loads of research to show that it works and it’s safe.
It’s used in many schools and teachers at university now learn how to do it. Many OTs and Speech therapists use it too.
And now it’s your turn to learn VSM too.
