Implement evidence-based interventions that work in schools and monitor progress
The BASC-2 family enables you to remediate behaviour and emotional issues with a comprehensive set of BASC-2™ Intervention Materials, which can then be followed up with the BASC-2™ Progress Monitor.
BASC-2™ Intervention Guide:
Firstly, this step-by-step guide provides extensive information on the most common behavioural and emotional issues. It can be used to select and implement evidence-based interventions that work in schools.
Covering 60 interventions, each chapter includes characteristics of the condition, theoretical framework, and a list of available evidence-based, proven interventions. In addition, the guide gives an overview of each intervention, followed by clear, step-by-step implementation procedures, evidence-for-use information, citations for each intervention, and a description of factors that may enhance or detract from the chosen intervention’s effectiveness.
Behaviour and emotional categories covered include:
- Academic Problems
- Attention Problems
- Conduct Problems
- Functional Communication
- Leadership/Social Skills.
Also available is a Classroom Intervention Guide which complements the BASC™-2 Intervention Guide. Consisting of easy-to-use, workbooks they provide descriptions, examples of common behaviours, reviews of the types of problems a student may be experiencing and intervention strategies.
Parent Tip Sheets in turn provide useful information about the categories of behavioural and emotional interventions and list steps and strategies that parents can take to help support school and home-based intervention strategies.
Finally, a Documentation Checklist is available for professionals to assist with reporting requirements.
BASC-2™ Progress Monitor:
The BASC™-2 Progress Monitor will help you easily monitor the effectiveness of interventions based on specific areas of concern grouped by internalising problems, externalising and ADHD problems, social withdrawal, and adaptive skills. By using the BASC-2™ Progress Monitor you can not only gain multiple perspectives to track progress effectively but readily meet documentation requirements with easy-to-use software reports.
There are four forms available – Teachers, Parent’s forms for preschool (ages 2–5) and Child/Adolescent and Student forms.
