Event Sampling

Event sampling refers to a series of brief observations and recordings to verify an individual’s behavioral pattern which may give light to causes and impact of the said behavior. This is usually done to effectively plan for pertinent strategies in modifying children’s behavior. For instance, the therapist is aiming to lessen a child’s inattentiveness inside the classroom. After obtaining the necessary permissions, she covertly video records the child’s behaviors for 30 minutes at different schedules for 5 days.
