In Only 10 Minutes, Measure How Stress and Trauma Are Impacting Your Student's Academics, Behaviors, Emotions, and Physiologic Functioning


The first comprehensive instrument measuring how stress and trauma impact children in a school-based setting from the teacher’s perspective.

Use to develop 504 recommendations, IEP accomodations, and to screen children within a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) delivery model.


Features and benefits

  • Quantifies the impact of traumatic experiences on school-based functioning, rather than the source, in order to help you generate specific interventions.
  • Completed by a classroom teacher or other educator familiar with the student’s typical behavior and day-to-day functioning.
  • Evaluates both academic functioning and resiliency in the same measure.
  • Demonstrates strong evidence of reliability and validity.
  • Four clinical scales (Behavior, Emotional, Physiological, Academic), one index (Trauma Index), and a supplemental Resiliency scale paint a broad picture of students’ functioning. Two validity scales are also provided.
  • Critical items are included to help identify children who may need immediate follow-up or intervention.
  • Designed for use by educational diagnosticians, school counselors, school psychologists, school nurses, community mental health providers, school administrators, and pediatricians.
  • Administered exclusively through PARiConnect. 
  • An e-Manual provides detailed administration and scoring instructions, along with psychometric data and rationale for publishing.
  • This edition can be used immediately by teachers while development of the full instrument, which will include a Parent Form and Self-Report Form, is ongoing.
  • Developed by noted school psychologist and educational neuropsychologist Steven G. Feifer, DEd.
