Highest Degree of Primary Presenter

Doctorate Degree

Presentation Abstract

Universal screening is a research-supported process for identifying students at risk of social, emotional, behavior, or academic challenges. With the increase in the use of the positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) framework in schools over the past 10 years, schools have piloted universal screening for social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. The session will cover topics including screening readiness, resource mapping, gap analyses, screening tools that are cost-effective and psychometrically strong, parental consent, collecting screening data, data analysis, data-based decision making, and intervention implementation. District personnel will have the opportunity to practice resource mapping and identifying gaps in their tiered systems of support. This will be a hands-on session for district personnel who would be responsible for coordinating or implementing the universal screening process in their districts.
