Systematic Screenings of Behavior to Support Instruction

Straightforward, practical, and user friendly, this unique guide addresses an essential component of decision making in schools. The authors show how systematic screenings of behavior -- used in conjunction with academic data -- can enhance teachers' ability to teach and support all students within a response-to-intervention framework. Chapters review reliable, valid screening measures for all grade levels, discuss their strengths and weaknesses, and explain how to administer, score, and interpret them. Practitioners get helpful guidance for evaluating their school's needs and resources and making sound choices about which tools to adopt.

About the Author

Kathleen Lynne Lane, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Special Education, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA; Holly Mariah Menzies, PhD, Division of Special Education and Counseling, California State University, Los Angeles, USA; Wendy Peia Oakes, PhD, Department of Special Education, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA; and Jemma Robertson Kalberg, MEd, BCBA, San Leandro, California, USA


"As a former university instructor and teacher of children with behavior disorders, my favorite part of this valuable book is the attention given to the 'how-tos.' There are other books that describe the technical aspects of these measures, but Lane et al. provide specific guidance about how to use the instruments in real settings; choose the instrument that meets your need; administer and score each measure; and, most important, use the information to improve outcomes for children. The school illustrations and the decision-making table further strengthen the quality and utility of this one-stop resource." - Renee Bradley, PhD, special educator "Lane is an accomplished special educator and scholar, and it shows -- she and her coauthors have written an easy-to-read, insightful guide to the best children's behavior screening measures on the market today. This book is ideal for practitioners and graduate students preparing to deliver multi-tiered interventions in schools, as well as for experienced researchers looking for an up-to-date analysis of tools for efficiently and effectively identifying students with behavior problems. It is simply the best book on behavior screening tools and practices for educators that I have read." - Stephen N. Elliott, Arizona State University, USA "Every school should use systematic screening for behavior problems so that positive behavioral support can be provided for students who need it. Every school can, and this book tells them why and how. The authors detail how schools can be improved by improving what goes on in them. They describe a kind of school reform that will make a substantive difference." - James M. Kauffman, University of Virginia, USA
