Behavioral Assessment & Intervention: The Integrated Disciplinary Approach.
Sneideman, Annemies; And Others
The Integrated Disciplinary Approach is a system for assessing individuals with suspected handicaps without overtesting and producing excessive data that can be confusing to both parents and professionals. The educational diagnostician, behavioral consultant, psychologist, classroom teacher(s), and parent(s) comprise the team that reviews referral concerns, shares preliminary data, and devises a plan for conducting the assessment. Before formal referral is made, alternative behavior strategies are examined. Assessment addresses the parents' and teachers' concerns via behavioral observations and interviews. The team meets to write a comprehensive evaluation report which is shared with the parents. The individualized education plan is developed and placement decided. Efforts are made to plan ongoing parent-teacher conferences to promote consistency in home and school. (CL)
