    Absolutely love this cheat sheet! I always find myself having trouble understanding data collection. Can you explain in more detail how you actually get your data? For example, out of 10 trials, You have to provide 5 verbal/visual cues. If the child gets it correct with cues, You would make a + with a circle around it correct? If they get it wrong even with cues, would you put a ~ (minus) with a circle around it or just mark it as a minus? Then how would you write out your findings for documentation purposes? Any clarification on how to take data objectively and report it would be greatly appreciated. I don’t know why this is always so confusing to me!

    • Shannon says:

      I’d typically just mark a minus but as long as you’re consistent, whatever works best for you works! In the example you gave, I’d write something like “Identified synonyms in 5/10 opportunities given a sentence strip, moderate gestural cues, and 1 direct verbal prompt.” If you’re stuck with data, I’d definitely recommend looking into SLP Toolkit! It’s been super helpful for me keeping track of everything!
