Primary Approaches
  • Direct student observation
  • Gathering information from informants
issues and trends
Issues and Trends
  • Preference for the term “behavioral disorders” rather than “emotional disturbance”
  • Definition of disability varies
  • Treatment has been influenced most by behavioral model and more recently by the ecological perspective
current practices
Current Practices
  • Both informal and formal measures are used
  • Personality measures are rarely used
sources of information
Sources of Information
  • School records
  • Student observations
  • Rating scales and inventories
  • Teacher observation and information
  • Peer acceptance and interaction
  • Parents can describe home environments and behavioral expectations
behavior rating scales
Behavior Rating Scales
  • Behavior Rating Profile (2nd ed.)( BRP–2)
    • Student self-rating and peer ratings
  • Behavior Evaluation Scale–2 (BES–2)
    • Items linked to federal definition of serious emotional disturbance
  • Social Skills Rating System (SSRS)
    • Assesses social skills, problem behaviors, and academic competence
    • Links assessment to interventions

  • Select a measurement system
  • Set up a data collection system
  • Select a data reporting system
  • Carry out observations and interpret results
functional assessment

  • Identify factors that influence the behavior
  • Generate a hypothesis
  • Program planning
