Chapter 2 covers the assessment process for children with school refusal behavior. This includes the purpose and methods of assessment, monitoring daily progress, and contacting school officials. The purpose of formally assessing a child with school refusal behavior is to obtain answers to three critical questions: (1) What is the behavior problem? (2) What is maintaining school refusal behavior? (3) What is the best treatment for school refusal behavior? Recommended assessment methods such as interviews, child self-report measures, and parent and teacher checklists are presented. Forms are included at the end of the chapter.
