© 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.The primary purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of presenting animated video prompting (VP) in teaching car wash skills to individuals with mild intellectual disability (ID). In addition, it was aimed to investigate the permanence of the teaching, the generalizability of the acquired skill, and the opinions of the participants and their families in the research about animation VP. A multiple probe design with probe conditions across subjects, one of the single-subject research designs, was used in the study. The participants of the study were three males with mild ID, ages 18–24. The study's findings show that individuals with mild ID can learn the car wash skill using the VP method prepared with animations. The use of animation can facilitate the preparation of video-based content, and video-based instruction can become widespread. Further research can investigate whether there is a difference in effectiveness and efficiency between the animation VP methods and the VP methods prepared using camera records.
