The Length of Time Necessary to Obtain a Representative Sample of Clinician-Client Interaction.
Schubert, George W.; Laird, Beverley A.
Ten children (4- to 7-years-old) receiving articulation and language therapy and their student clinicians were evaluated on the Analysis of Behavior of Clinicians System to determine the length of time necessary to obtain a representative sample of clinician-client interaction during a therapy session. Approximately 10 minutes after the clinician and the client entered the experimental room, a video tape recording was made of a 15-minute segment of each therapy session. Data indicated that no significant difference existed between the behavioral patterns of clinician-client interaction when five 3-minute segments of recorded clinician-client interaction were compared. Thus, it was determined that a 3-minute period was sufficient to obtain a representative sample of clinician-client interaction during a therapy session. (GW)
