Universal Screening • SSBD 2nd ed.
Easy, quick, and reliable.
SSBD is an evidence-based screening system for identifying students who are at risk for internalizing and externalizing problems. These two forms of behavioral problems can disrupt social adjustment and impair academic success. SSBD provides the means to quickly identify these students and enables school staff to imlement earluy iterventions and supports.
As soon as teachers complete their screenings, individual student reports are automatically scored and generated by SSBD Online. At a district and school level, those staff members with administrative access can view and download school and individual student reports.
With SSBD, you can proactively intervene with students at high risk for behavioral problems. Help your school get ahead of the next crisis.

Early intervention can make a positive difference in the lives of students with severe and/or chronic behavior disorders.
The SSBD is viewed by many researchers to be the gold standard of systematic screening (Kauffman, 2001; Lane, Little, et al., 2009). In fact, it is the only tool designed to explicitly detect elementary students with either externalizing or internalizing behavior patterns.

The SSBD has transformed the field of primary prevention of school emotional or behavioral problems. It is quite literally where special educators, school psychologists, and other school mental health professionals need to begin their work. It is the indispensable school technology for early detection.
