SCHMIDT, Carlo; NUNES, Leila Regina O. de P.; SILVA, Thatyana M.  and  OLIVEIRA, Jéssica Jaíne M. de. Autoscopy as a methodological resource in the interventions with autism: empirical aspects. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.3, pp. 418-436. ISSN 1516-3687.

Autoscopy is a methodological resource that includes video recording procedures with interventional practices, directing the analysis, and self-evaluation to the protagonists of this practice. The objective of this study is to present evidence of the effectiveness of the autoscopy procedure in autism interventions. Autoscopy was an independent variable in two of the experimental single-subject studies. Study A verified the effects of autoscopy on the teacher using pictographic cards to enhance student's communication and waiting for students' responses after their requests . Study B analyzed the effect on the socio-communicative abilities of the mother of the child and the child during the intervention. It was concluded that the responses of the teachers, just as much as the parents, showed significant statistical effects by the autoscopy, attesting to its robustness. The change in the participants' behavior wielded by the autoscopy is discussed.
