Gain the Student's Perspective as You Evaluate for Emotional Disturbance


The third in the EDDT series, the EDDT-SR is a standardized, norm-referenced assessment designed to assist in the identification of children who qualify for the federal special education category of emotional disturbance (ED). The EDDT-SR is completed by children and adolescents ages 9-18 years and is intended to be used in conjunction with EDDT parent and/or teacher versions to develop a well-rounded picture of an individual's functioning.

Features and benefits

  • Based on the criteria presented in the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) with scales that map directly onto this criteria. Provides a standardized approach to help clinicians obtain a child's perspective of his or her functioning in IDEA areas.
  • Additional analysis and scores have been developed for all three EDDT versions including base rates for discrepancies between raters and reliable change scores.
  • Brief vignettes are included that aid clinicians in troubleshooting problems that may occur when using self-report measures and help illustrate how to use self-report data in conjunction with other assessment and interview data.

This report combines EDDT scores from up to four raters (parent, teacher, and self-report) to provide a well-rounded view of student functioning. It includes a combined score profile to represent similarities and differences between raters graphically and highlights statistically significant score differences. The EDDT Criteria Table aligns each rater’s scores to the federal criteria for ED diagnosis. To view a sample report, click the Resources tab above.
