Nakutin, Sarah N.; Gutierrez, Garbriel – School Psychology Review, 2019
Numerous interventions have been identified as evidence-based practices for educating students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Physical activity (PA) has recently been recognized as an evidence-based practice to decrease maladaptive behaviors and increase desired behaviors. Exercise has been found to increase academic engagement in students…

Odom, Samuel L. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Peer-mediated intervention has become a primary education practice in programs for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This article traces the emergence of peer-mediated interventions from early laboratory studies to the extensive applied research in the field that has documented the efficacy of the practice. Interventions to…

This study used growth curve modeling to map risk by gender across the middle school transition. Participants included 609 (49.5% female) students in grades 4-8 in an urban school serving primarily African American youth from low-income communities. Results indicated that overall risk increased over time and was consistent over the middle school…

Hier, Bridget O.; Eckert, Tanya L.; Viney, Elizabeth A. – School Psychology Review, 2019
This study examined whether 2 evidence-based intervention strategies resulted in maintenance and generalization of writing fluency gains. In this study, 115 third-grade students were randomly assigned to a performance feedback intervention condition, a goal setting intervention condition, or a control condition. Neither intervention strategy…

Martin, Ryan J.; Codding, Robin S.; Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Gould, Kaitlin M.; DeFouw, Emily R.; Volpe, Robert J. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Fact fluency is an important prerequisite to mastering more complex and abstract mathematics principles. Delivering math interventions in the home setting may be a feasible way to expose students to necessary supports and improve math outcomes. The present study utilized a multiple baseline design across parent-student dyads to examine the impact…

Fite, Paula J.; Poquiz, Jonathan; Díaz, Kathleen I.; Williford, Anne; Tampke, Elizabeth C. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Extant research indicates that peer victimization is an important factor in the development of internalizing symptoms for youth. However, few studies have examined contextual factors that may impact how peer victimization contributes to these symptoms in middle childhood, especially in the form of victimization. The current study evaluated…

Bosman, Rianne J.; Zee, Marjolein; Koomen, Helma M. Y. – School Psychology Review, 2019
The present study examined how different externalizing child behaviors (i.e., hyperactivity, conduct problems) were uniquely associated with teachers' mental representations of relationships with individual children. Participants were 61 teacher-child dyads from typical Dutch elementary schools. Using a two-wave design, teachers first reported…

Zawoyski, Andrea; Ardoin, Scott P. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Reading comprehension assessments often include multiple-choice (MC) questions, but some researchers doubt their validity in measuring comprehension. Consequently, new assessments may include more short-answer (SA) questions. The current study contributes to the research comparing MC and SA questions by evaluating the effects of anticipated…

Inge, Zweers; Bijstra, Jan O.; de Castro, Bram Orobio; Tick, Nouchka T.; van de Schoot, Rens A. G. J. – School Psychology Review, 2019
This study examined which factors were related to placement choices for inclusive regular education or exclusive special education for Dutch students with social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties (SEBD). Students aged 6-11 in three subgroups participated: 45 included and 17 excluded students with SEBD (i.e., educated in regular education…

Codding, Robin S.; Volpe, Robert J.; Martin, Ryan J.; Krebs, Genevieve – School Psychology Review, 2019
The number of opportunities to respond (OTR) and spacing (massed or distributed practice) of practice sessions are important variables to consider in instructional design. The purpose of this pilot study was to compare the impact of these variables on trajectories of mathematics fluency. Second- and third-grade students (N = 112) were randomly…

Ramirez, Lauren Haas; Hawkins, Renee O.; Collins, Tai A.; Ritter, Chelsea; Haydon, Todd – School Psychology Review, 2019
Group contingencies are an effective way to prevent and address problem behavior; however, the extent to which these effects transfer to settings where the intervention is not implemented (i.e., setting generalization) is unknown. Using a multiple baseline design, this study assessed the setting generalization of the effects of an interdependent…

Fallon, Lindsay M.; Collier-Meek, Melissa A.; Kurtz, Kathryn D. – School Psychology Review, 2019
Although there are many definitions of a "high-need" (or high-risk) school, typically researchers and policy makers agree it is a setting in which a vast percentage of students are (a) living in economic disadvantage, (b) from racially diverse backgrounds, (c) identified as having a disability, or (d) underperforming academically. Many…

Dillon, Melissa B. McHugh; Radley, Keith C.; Tingstrom, Daniel H.; Dart, Evan H.; Barry, Christopher T. – School Psychology Review, 2019
The current study was designed to evaluate the effects of a tootling intervention, in which students report on peers' appropriate behavior, modified to incorporate ClassDojo technology, on class-wide disruptive behavior and academically engaged behavior. An A-B-A-B withdrawal design was used to evaluate the effects of the intervention in 3…
