SSTA Research in Brief, Nov 1994

This study attempted to determine the number of programs for Canadian students with behavioral disorders, identify practices currently used in these programs, and examine the availability of written program descriptions. A literature review provides information on: definition and prevalence (both in general and in Canada specifically); historical trends in service delivery; conceptual models (i.e., biogenic, psychodynamic, psychoeducational, humanistic, ecological, behavioral, and social cognitive); service delivery at the school district level; current trends and issues (i.e., the Regular Education Initiative, consultation, prereferral strategies, and transition programming); and service delivery research. School district administrators in 147 school districts were surveyed, of which 80 percent responded. Specific findings are given for the areas of definition, program design and operation, program philosophy, student identification, program goals, instructional methods and curriculum, community involvement, exit procedures, and program evaluation. Findings indicated that 85 percent of respondents do provide programming for students with behavior disorders. Over 40 percent of school districts have written program descriptions in the areas of program philosophy, student needs and identification, program goals, and program design and operations. Referral procedures tended to be well articulated, while instructional methods and curriculum, exit procedures, and evaluation plans are less formalized. (Contains 120 references.) (DB)
