A Comparison of Two Methods of Recording and Analyzing Student Clinician-Client Interaction: ABC System and the "Boone" System.
Schubert, George W.; Glick, Audrey M.
The research study (described in a paper presented at the 1973 American Speech and Hearing Association Convention) was designed to compare information obtained from the use of the ABC and the Boone/Prescott Systems, two different procedures for recording and analyzing speech clinician-client interaction. Videotapes were made of eight University of North Dakota student speech clinicians involved in articulation and language therapy with 4-to-6-year-old clients. Because both systems did not contain a time factor, it was difficult to establish whether or not the two systems would provide the clinician with similar information. Greater ease was noted in recording within the Boone/Prescott system. The two systems yielded approximately the same information when the therapy situation was basically stimulus, response, reinforcement, with a minimum of irrelevant behavior; however, the ABC System gave more pertinent information when the session was poorly planned and carried out. Both systems provided objective information which could be useful in changing clinician behavior. (LH)
