The Frenzied SLPs are discussing data collection now that school is back in full swing! Today I'll be sharing one way I like to take daily data quickly when I have a client with several goals in a 1:1 therapy setting. If you'd like to see how I took data in the school setting click here.
Firstly, when working in private practice, I like to create a basic treatment plan, a course of action in which I would like to see progress. Below is an example of a basic treatment plan.
Then I take the goal sheet and create a daily data sheet:
1. I align the goal #s from the treatment plan to the goal sheet so I know which goals I am targeting without having to re-write them for each session.
2. I can simply take data only on the goals I target each session.
3. I also add a place for additional notes.
4. I would typically hand write on this form, rather than type. So if I would need additional lines for notes, I would simply continue to the next like and so on until I finished the note. Then simply add the date of the next session on the next fully clear line.
How about you? Do you have a quick data collection system too? Feel free to share!
