About the Book

This important volume presents strategies and procedures for assessing both emotional/behavioral problems and academic difficulties. Arranged by assessment content areas, the volume discusses such methodologies as behavioral interviewing, observation, self-monitoring, use of self- and informant-report, and both analogue and curriculum-based assessment. All chapters are supported by numerous examples and illustrations.

Reviews

"…provides an excellent description of strategies for implementing a blueprint of change in service delivery in the schools. The strategies are consistent with a general behavioral framework, and the service delivery model serves as a heuristic subject to future changes."
