The SAED-2 assists you in identifying students with emotional disturbance (ED). Gathered information can be used to select IEP goals, supplement functional behavior assessments, document progress, and facilitate research. The three components of the SAED-2 each may be used in any combination.
- The Rating Scale is a reliable, standardized, norm-referenced instrument that contains seven scales: Inability to Learn, Relationship Problems, Inappropriate Behavior, Unhappiness or Depression, Physical Symptoms or Fears, Socially Maladjusted, and Adverse Effect on Educational Performance.
- The Developmental/Educational Questionnaire is designed to gather information from the student’s parent or other primary caregiver.
- The Observation Form is a supplemental tool that relies directly on observation methods to assess target behaviors, classroom behavior, and emotional problems of students. It measures observable aspects of the federal definitions of ED characteristics.
- Normed on two large representative samples of students: one with children who had ED and one with children who didn’t.
