Cole’s mother and English teacher completed BASC II scales. The BASC II measures a student’s emotional, behavioral, and adaptive functioning. The score that is used for the scale is the T-score. The T-score indicates the distance of a score from the norm group mean. The BASC II has a mean T-score of 50 with a standard deviation of 10. Scores ranging 60 to 69 are considered to be in the At-Risk range. The T-scores that are 70+ are in the Clinically Significant range. On the Adaptive Scale portion of the BASC II, the T-Scores that are from 30 to 39 are in the At-Risk range. The T-scores that are below 29 are in the Clinically Significant range.

You mentioned in your post the Child Behavioral Checklist is widely used and there is data and evidenced to back the research. Your post makes me think outside the box in regards to the many different assessments used to diagnosis people and their effectiveness.
Research that was not listed in the Research Summary includes how this early language intervention program can be used with other populations. There is evidence for the program’s efficacy as an intervention for children with motor-speech disorders. Pennington, Thomson, James, Martin, and McNally (2009) conducted a study investigating the efficacy of the program with preschool children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). The researchers found that the program had positive effects on both the mothers and the children in the study. It was found that the mothers initiated conversations less after exposure to the program, allowing for more opportunities for their children to initiate. The mothers were also found to produce more statements in response to their children after being trained using the program. Thus, this finding is
Even though there is a great deal of research on the long term benefits of early intervention, continued screening and research will allow to further prove research that has shown “stronger and more consistent evidence of the benefits of early identification and intervention (prior to 12 months) on the development of language and communication skills” (Calderon, 1998, p. 55). Moreover, children are found to have better language scores when they enter early intervention before twelve months. With this, the two studies further explain the importance of early intervention.
Throughout this research project a variety of research methods were used. These included, practitioner questionnaires, observations, the child’s view through them taking photographs and through interviews with them. A child monitoring tool was also used to assess the developmental level of each child participants communication, language and speech. Using practitioner knowledge about each participants communication skills, along with observations, a best fit method was implemented across the four strands of early language and communication (Leicestershire County Council, 2015). The variety of data
