    Interpret the research findings and explain significance of findings

    The research findings are that:

    1) Pre-referral intervention can reduce the number of students placed into special education for acting out behaviors when such behaviors are attributed to the effects of a recent parental separation or divorce.
    2) The community agency counselor can play a unique role in assisting schools in helping students cope with issues that impede their education when those issues relate to responses to family dissolution.
    3) Conflict theory (incompatible actions in a given situation) plays a unique role in treating the effects of family dissolution upon school behavior.

    Such findings show that external factors-such as a divorce- can play a major role in children's behavior in school.

    Solution Summary

    Such findings show that external factors-such as a divorce- can play a major role in children's behavior in school. Consequently, those findings are very important in helping schools become more involved in developing prevention techniques that will assist children with adapting more successful with their life situation when facing parental divorce or separation. Finally, those findings are very important in helping to prevent the misdiagnosis of children in the school system. For example, when the above conflict is not taken into consideration, many a times, children tend to be referred for special education classes when all they needed was some type of mild intervention that could have prevented such referral. However, there are 3 major problems the study failed to address. This is where your critique of the statistical analysis would come from.
