Debra: I am a special education teacher. One of the students in my class responds well to video modeling which is an evidenced based practice for working with students with autism. His outside behavioral counselor and I are working together to try to stop certain inappropriate behaviors by observing various strategies to lesson meltdowns and then collaborating on what changes need to be made. His parent has given consent to video student on my cell phone and then text or email photos and video to her and the counselor. My principal says that even with parental consent, it is illegal and against special education law to video tape a student. Is this correct? Does this still apply to a student on an IEP who responds well to this Evidence Based Practice?
