School-Based Behavioral Assessment: Informing Intervention and Instruction (The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series ) (Paperback)
This indispensable book helps school practitioners go beyond putting a label on student behavior problems--it shows how to use assessment to partner with teachers and students to develop effective solutions. The authors provide a framework for determining the types of behavioral data that are needed in a given situation, selecting appropriate measures, and interpreting and organizing the results. Case examples tie it all together, demonstrating how different assessment strategies can be used to support positive behavior and monitor progress at the level of the individual, the classroom, or the entire school. In a large-size format with convenient lay-flat binding, the volume features 15 reproducible checklists and forms.
This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.

"Like the other volumes in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, it covers its subject matter as concisely as possible while addressing the key concepts and issues the clinician needs to be familiar with....The school psychologist who fully grasps the material in this very short book will be on solid ground in performing a functional behavioral assessment and developing a behavior intervention plan. The book would be very understandable for a graduate student yet the most seasoned school psychologist would also find it very informative."
