The observation and recording of natural behavior for diagnosis and treatment in the study of child development, in social service, physical rehabilitation, and occupational therapy has long eluded clear objectification, let alone quantification. Recent applications of probabilistic conjoint measurement to the development and maintenance of questionnaires and interview recording forms in these areas have proven workable and clarifying. The substantive achievements of these applications and the way they evolve from the practical implementation of probabilistic conjoint measurement are outlined and explained.
