10 Benefits of an MDSS:
- It can save clinician time by incorporating details in the numbers rather than in the side notes.
- It more clearly validates the effectiveness of skilled intervention and its techniques such as cueing, scaffolding, and redirection.
- It describes the client’s response with substantial sensitivity, specifying elements like self-correction; calm repair; and delay.
- It clarifies and more clearly displays progress, especially smaller increments of change.
- The progress display encourages the client.
- It provides an enhanced representation of what actually occurred during treatment.
- On a response form, it gives a snapshot of as well as an overall sense of the therapeutic interaction.
- By using 16 different points, the SLP observer may begin to appreciate aspects of behavior previously missed.
- The SLP can adapt the ATB-MDSS for his/her individual, specific needs, perhaps targeting a certain response type.
It supports clinical accountability.
