Cook, Bryan G.; Therrien, William J. – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
Researchers sometimes conduct a study and find that the predicted relation between variables did not exist or that the intervention did not have a positive impact on student outcomes; these are referred to as null findings because they fail to disconfirm the null hypothesis. Rather than consider such studies as failures and disregard the null…

Messenger, Mallory; Common, Eric Alan; Lane, Kathleen Lynne; Oakes, Wendy Peia; Menzies, Holly Mariah; Cantwell, Emily D.; Ennis, Robin Parks – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
Increasing students' opportunities to respond (OTR) is a low-intensity strategy effective in increasing engagement. Building on the work of Haydon and colleagues, we compared two types of OTR, choral and mixed (70% choral, 30% individual), to examine the utility of these strategies in increasing active student responding and accuracy during…

Losinski, Mickey; Cook, Katie; Hirsch, Shanna; Sanders, Sara – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
In the past decade, the number of children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has steadily increased. A common characteristic of ASD is the presence of stereotypical behaviors (e.g., hand flapping, echolalia), which some have suggested may be associated with heightened arousal and/or anxiety. The purpose of this study is to compare…

We conducted this systematic literature review to explore the current evidence base of instructional choice, a low-intensity, teacher-delivered strategy to support academic engagement and decrease challenging behaviors. Specifically, we focused on school-based settings, applying quality indicators (QIs) and evidence-based standards of the Council…

Hartman, Kelsey; Gresham, Frank M.; Byrd, Shelby – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
Universal screening for emotional and behavioral risk in schools facilitates early identification and intervention for students as part of multitiered systems of support. Early identification has the potential to mitigate adverse outcomes of emotional and behavioral disorders. The purpose of this study was to extend existing research on the…

Algozzine, Bob; Schmid, Rex; Conners, Bob – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
Most definitions of emotionally disturbed youngsters suggest that disturbances in the child's behavior patterns cause academic and social problems which affect the child and his peers. While the process of identification may be facilitated by operational criteria within a definition, these factors are noticeably absent from definitions of…

Algozzine, Bob – Behavioral Disorders, 2017
This is a quiet rant. A request to revisit an article reprinted in this issue prompted it and I focus on context and purpose of the original article, lack of developments in the field since the article was published, and favored directions to take in the future related to the focus of the original work. [This classic article was indexed in ERIC in…
