How are the single-subject methods unique to experimental research?

Think of a problem behavior that you might want to improve upon in one of your future clients, and devise a single-subject design to study the effectiveness of your new intervention (nail biting)

Which single-subject approach would you use here (baseline, discrete trials, dynamic), and why?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The purpose of the present study is twofold: (a) to compare the validation of percentage of nonoverlapping data approach and percentage of data points exceeding the median of baseline phase (PEM) approach, and (b) to demonstrate application of the PEM approach in conducting a quantitative synthesis of single-subject research investigating the effectiveness of self-control. The results show that the PEM had higher Spearman correlation with original authors’judgment than PND did. The results of applying the PEM approach to synthesize the effect of self-control training on academic and social behavior showed that the treatment was highly or at least moderately effective. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
