“Lane is an accomplished special educator and scholar, and it shows—she and her coauthors have written an easy-to-read, insightful guide to the best children’s behavior screening measures on the market today. This book is ideal for practitioners and graduate students preparing to deliver multi-tiered interventions in schools, as well as for experienced researchers looking for an up-to-date analysis of tools for efficiently and effectively identifying students with behavior problems. It is simply the best book on behavior screening tools and practices for educators that I have read.”

—Stephen N. Elliott, PhD, Director, Learning Sciences Institute, and Mickelson Professor of Education, Arizona State University


“There is probably no one more qualified than Lane and her colleagues to write the definitive book on schoolwide behavioral screening instruments. After an enormously convincing introductory chapter on precisely why we need to do early screening, subsequent chapters cover each of the top six scientifically supported instruments. Lane and her colleagues have used nearly every one of these quite extensively, either in their clinical practice or their impressive published research. This book is a wonderfully useful 'Consumer Reports' that manages to focus on both the behavioral and the academic uses of each instrument. It will be indispensable to all of us working in school settings, to students preparing to work in schools, and to anyone who still needs to be convinced that schoolwide screening is critical.”

—Steven Forness, EdD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles


“As a former university instructor and teacher of children with behavior disorders, my favorite part of this valuable book is the attention given to the 'how-tos.' There are other books that describe the technical aspects of these measures, but Lane et al. provide specific guidance about how to use the instruments in real settings; choose the instrument that meets your need; administer and score each measure; and, most important, use the information to improve outcomes for children. The school illustrations and the decision-making table further strengthen the quality and utility of this one-stop resource.”

—Renee Bradley, PhD, special educator


“Every school should use systematic screening for behavior problems so that positive behavioral support can be provided for students who need it. Every school can, and this book tells them why and how. The authors detail how schools can be improved by improving what goes on in them. They describe a kind of school reform that will make a substantive difference.”

—James M. Kauffman, EdD, Professor Emeritus of Education, University of Virginia
