The Use of Videotaped Vignettes in Diagnosing Children: A Preliminary Exploration.
Schuster, Lauren; Srebro, Karen; Chambliss, Catherine
This preliminary study examined the feasibility of using home videotape vignettes in the process of diagnosing young children's behavioral problems. It assessed whether recurrent symptomatic behaviors would appear spontaneously on home videotape. Twenty-eight mental health providers-in-training competed symptom checklists after viewing tapes of two children without diagnoses and two children already diagnosed with mild attachment disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Evaluators were able to detect a behavior difference between the diagnosed and undiagnosed children on the attachment scale, the hyperactivity and oppositional behavior scale, and the attention and social skills scale. Across diagnosis groups, male children were perceived as showing more hyperactive and oppositional symptoms than females. (DB)
