To determine if there were differences between using anatomically correct dolls, drawings, or verbal descriptions in the accuracy and completeness of information,45 girls ages 9 to 10 were studied. The children were shown a 12-minute videotape designed to provide information on sexual
abuse and its prevention. Subjects were interviewed individually and requested to tell everything they remembered about the videotape using one of the three methods. Results indicated that the children in the group using either dolls or drawings obtained higher scores, but the differences
between groups were not statistically significant.
