Workshop DescriptionThe workshop will cover research on child psychopathology, prevention of behavioral and emotional problems, linking individualized intervention plans to BASC-3 assessment results, and RTI, as these findings relate to behavioral and emotional assessment of children and adolescents. The BASC-3 will be used as an example of one set of assessment tools that may be utilized to address these issues. Inter-rater agreement, validity, universal screening, intervention and prevention planning, and progress monitoring will be discussed.

1. demonstrate knowledge about how to create a BASC-3 Flex Monitor form,
2. identify which BASC-3 clinical and content scales may be used to identify children with possible Autism Disorders,
3. list at least two possible interpretations of the BASC-3 Atypicality scales,
