Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The effects of direct and indirect school consultation methods on teacher treatment integrity and student behavior change in a general education setting
by Rahn, Hope E., Ph.D., Capella University, 2008, 140; 3316431
Abstract (Summary)

School consultation is generally regarded as an effective way in which to reach more students with fewer resources. However, school consultation can only be considered effective if the process results in a behavior change for both the student and the teacher. Student behavior change can be assessed by monitoring academic or behavioral progress; similarly, teacher behavior change can be measured by monitoring the degree to which the teacher implements a designed intervention, or their level of treatment integrity. Previous consultation research has focused on ways in which to increase treatment integrity following consultation, but fewer studies have examined which specific methods used during the consultation process result in higher levels of treatment integrity and student behavior change. The present study explored further options on the continuum of training methods in school consultation and the resulting effects on treatment integrity and student behavior change.
