The iModeling app is based on research into Video Modeling conducted by Autism SA and the Disabilities Research Unit at the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, South Australia. The iModeling Project is funded by two grants from the Telstra Foundation over six years.

Yes, the app is easy to use and there are tutorial style videos that explain how to use the app before starting.

Yes, the app can be used across the lifespan and can be tailored to the individual person’s interests and goals. The app can be moved between different environments as well to generalise skills, and provide different teachings in different contexts.

Motivators are not required in the app but can be added as comments by person designing the video.

Does the app target the intended skill/topic?
