EBD: Screening

EBD: Screening

Screening is common in schools everywhere, but it’s rarely used for emotional behavior disorders. This course explains the basics of EBD screening. The prevalence of emotional behavior disorders (EBDs) appears to be on the rise. Managing challenging behaviors is often identified as one of the most difficult aspects of teaching. One way to help is by using universal screeners to help identify students that may have an emotional behavior disorder. EBDs are not difficult to implement and are cost effective. The data from EBD screening can be helpful to all students for data-based decision making for school-wide positive behavior supports. This course addresses all aspects of EBD screening, and even identifies several popular screening tools.
