  Designed to address one of the most critical challenges in education and juvenile care - accurate identification of non- handicapped conduct problem children and adults - the DT/CEP is an effective and comprehensive screening instrument. It reliably differentiates between three critical populations: Conduct Disorder, Emotionally Disturbed, and noninvolved. The DT/CEP greatly facilitates the decision to place a student in special education or maintain a student that is already in regular education.

  The autonomous conduct problem and emotional disturb- ance scales makes the DT/CEP ideal for mass screenings in both educational and private settings. The user friendly design and detailed manual allow this instrument to be reliably administered by paraprofessionals, allowing psychologists and counselors more time with disordered populations. The DT/CEP is statistically acountable as well as practical, while it generates relevant information for IEP meetings, parental or professional staffing, and especially for educational placement decisions.
