Abstract: Two videotaping procedures (one-camera and two-camera) for assessing tardive dyskinesia (TD) and stereotypies were contrasted. Videotapes were subsequently rated utilizing the Dyskinesia Identification System-Condensed User Scale, which was developed in the context of a neuroleptic drug withdrawal regimen to assess abnormal involuntary movements in a developmentally disabled population. Results suggest that both videotaping procedures are able to detect TD-like movements, but that more movements are detected with the two-camera procedure (full-view and close-up) than with the one-camera (full-view only) procedure. These procedures are applicable to clinical settings for TD monitoring.
