In past semesters, this volunteer student research team developed Quick Response (QR) codes as a clinical tool to allow convenient, efficient access to video materials during therapy sessions to help children and adults understand language. The purpose of this project was to investigate the differences in language usage depending on the stimulus materials used in therapy. Participants, typical language users, were shown two types of stimulus: pictures and corresponding videos. Responses were transcribed by the researchers to explore whether language is different in quality or amount when describing pictures versus video.
