Schoolwide Screening and Programs of Positive Behavior Support: Informing Universal Interventions
Marchant, Michelle; Anderson, Darlene H.; Caldarella, Paul; Fisher, Adam; Young, Benjamin J.; Young, K. Richard
Preventing School Failure, v53 n3 p131-144 Spr 2009
Researchers have suggested that screening, identification, and treatment are important components of comprehensive systems of positive behavior support. The authors highlight a procedure for using multiple data sources to develop strategies at the universal intervention level. Examples of schoolwide assessments include interviews, observations, focus groups, archival data, systematic screening for behavior disorders, and office disciplinary referrals. A descriptive summary of data collected in an elementary school illustrates an interpretive process that school teams could use before selecting universal interventions. A comparison of subjective and objective data collection methods suggests that varied data sources have differing implications for intervention planning. The authors underscore the benefits of integrating data before selecting universal interventions and include implications for research and practice. (Contains 1 figure and 5 tables.)
