You have been asked to consult with a classroom in a day treatment facility for children and teens who are receiving treatment for psychiatric issues. Nearly half of the students also have a learning disability diagnosis or an identified developmental delay. This week, you pick the age of the class you will be working in. After assessing the class setting, students, and teacher for need, you determine that your target behaviors include: students leaving their assigned seats during instruction time; students speaking out of turn, even if they raise their hands; students taking and playing with belongings that are not theirs; students calling each other names and arguing with each other; and teacher responding to problematic behaviors only after there is a problem between two students such as a verbal altercation.

Given the age and developmental level of the students, describe an appropriate group intervention and discuss how it will effectively address the target behaviors.

How would you apply best practices when designing a group intervention for your students?

Describe the case study's educational setting and social situation.
Identify the curriculum evaluation model(s) used in the case study.

Who selected the assessment tools?
What assessment tools were used?
Who used the assessment tools?
Where were the assessment tools used (e.g., classrooms, hallways, labs)?
How often were the tools used (e.g., twice a week over a period of 3 months)?
Did the tools fit the model? Would you suggest other tools needed for measuring the aspects of the curriculum being evaluated?
Summarize the evaluation's outcomes and any recommendations made in the evaluation. Would you include other recommendations that came from the same data that was collected by the assessment tools?
Would you suggest more analysis of the curriculum and, if so, what aspects of the curriculum would need additional analysis?
Would you suggest a different evaluation model for this curriculum and setting and, if so, why?
