Background and Context for using Screening
Some evidence from Washington schools using SSBD
Application of using SSBD in Illinois
Discussion of using Screening Tools
Reliable Tools available for past 20 years
Universal screening offers opportunity for prevention, yet….
Schools reluctant to conduct behavioral screening:
Fear of “stigmatizing kids”
Concerns regarding efficient/effective methods of supporting identified youth
Source: Walker, Cheney, Stage, Blum (2005)
Develop behavior support team
Monitor ODRs and teacher referral
Use school or ODR criteria (2-5 ODR) to nominate students for Tier 2
Capture externalizing disruptive students
Addresses prevalence of emotional/behavior problems among school-age children ranges between 9%-13% (Tier 2 & 3 Students)
Provides a valid and reliable approach for identifying student behavioral issues
Externalizing and Internalizing students are identified
Highlights schools as an ideal environment for addressing mental health-related issues
“Less stigmatizing” than clinics
Potential to reach large groups of youth and families
Successfully identify kids with internalizing behaviors
Behavioral screening viewed as normative, e.g., Vision, Hearing, Literacy
Good fit with RTI behavior model
Links to prevention programs & reduces need for more intensive services later
Untreated emotional/behavioral issues correlate with negative outcomes
Poor grades & personal relationships
High school dropout & Unemployment
Incarceration, Substance abuse, Suicide
Teachers Rank Order 3 Ext. & 3 Int. Students
Pass Gate 1
Teachers Rate Top 3 Students on Critical Events, Adaptive & Maladaptive Scales
Pass Gate 2
Classroom & Playground Observations
Tier 3 Intervention or Special Ed. Referral
3 Elem. Schools, 80/80 SET, 1999-2003
124 students (70 Ext./54 Int.) Ext. > 1 s.d. on Social Skills and Prob Behs./ Not Int.
Screening & ODR: >ODR, >Prob. Behs.
Screening+ODR increases # of at-risk students
Screening and use of school supports maintains students at SST level (Gate 2 Tier 2), and fewer FBA/BSP or referred to Special Ed (Gate 3, Tier 3)
119 Tier 2 CCE Intervention, 86 Comparison Students in 18 schools
73/119 students (61%) graduate within 2 yrs
SSBD & Behavioral Measures differentiate graduates, comparisons, nongraduates.
Graduates lower problem behaviors & increase social skills in growth curve model.
