Videotaping is used in an “interactional guidance” model to evaluate children from infancy through the preschool years. This article discusses the use and value of videotaping parent-infant interactions in evaluating young children and their families. The model is seen as being effective in developing an initial treatment plan and in doing interventions. A clinical illustration is used to illustrate how videotaping is used in the evaluation process.
