Evaluation and Diagnosis of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders in the Schools Under the BASC-3 Model

ESC-20 provides resources, training and technical assistance for evaluators. Quarterly contact group meetings for LSSP’s and Educational Diagnosticians are also provided.

Important Session Information:

This day-long training focuses on development and application of a model of assessment of emotional and behavioral disorders in a school setting with an emphasis on not just eligibility, but developing a comprehensive diagnosis and understanding of the student. Differential diagnosis that leads to a process of identification of evidence-based interventions tailored to student needs is emphasized. While the Behavior Assessment System for Children, Third Edition (BASC-3) is emphasized as a model for such assessments and advanced interpretive methods for BASC-3 will be reviewed, the basic approach applies to most assessment devices.  Diagnosis of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) will be used as a model but other disorders will be discussed as well. Actuarial approaches will be emphasized but the need to integrate these approaches with individual children will also be stressed and approaches to involving parents in the process will be discussed.  Effective report writing will be discussed and it is anticipated that a general Q&A session will be possible for the final 30 minutes of the presentation in order to address specific questions and concerns of attendees.  This workshop is intended for persons who are already familiar with the BASC-3 and will be at an intermediate to advanced level and is not an introduction to BASC-3.

At the end of this session, examinees will:

Understand the applicability of the BASC-3 to classification of students as ED.
  1. Understand the derivation and application of the BASC-3 probability indexes.

  2. Apply the various components of the BASC-3 to differential diagnoses consistent with the DSM 5.

  3. Understand and apply the BASC-3 links to evidence-based intervention materials suitable for use in school settings.
