A brief and very effective 50 item inventory, the DBRS identifies common behavior problems such as attention deficit disorder, attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity, oppositional disorders, and anti-social conduct problems.  Unlike other rating scales, the wording of the teacher and parent versions are nearly identical, allowing legitimate comparisons between their responses.  Scale items were specifically written to allow direct teacher transfer to behavior-modification plans, IEPs or 504 plans.

    The DBRS facilitates descisions for student placement, especially with regard to least restrictive instructional settings.  Special educators, psychologists, Chapter 1 staff, and professionals/paraprofessionals who are under pressure not to remove students from instructional settings, will avoid student pull-out dilemmas using the DBRS.
