9781557665393: CSBS Manual: Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales

CSBS(TM) components include - Caregiver Questionnaire. Caregivers complete this 15-minute, 4-page qualitative questionnaire to provide background information. Their responses provide a baseline that helps professionals evaluate a child's performance. - Behavior Sample. After the questionnaire is complete, professionals conduct the videotaped Behavior Sample, observing both structured and unstructured play situations in the child's natural environment as the caregiver interacts with the child. The sampling procedure uses communicative temptations, book sharing, symbolic play, language comprehension probes, and constructive play. Later, professionals convert results to scores on 22 five-point scales, organized in seven clusters: communicative functions, gestural communicative means, vocal communicative means, verbal communicative means, reciprocity, social-affective signaling, and symbolic behavior. This yields raw scores and scale scores for the 22 scales, percentile ranks or standard scores for the seven clusters, a percentile rank or standard overall composite score, and norms by chronological age or language stage. - Record Form. Data from the Caregiver Questionnaire and the Behavior Sample are tallied on this 12-page form, which identifies the 22 communication and symbolic rating scales. - CSBS(TM) Manual. The manual includes technical data about CSBS(TM), plus instructions on how to administer the questionnaire and sampling procedures, plan interventions, analyze the videotaped behavior samples, and score and interpret the assessment. - CSBS(TM) Toy Kit. This kit includes familiar, action-based play materials that entice spontaneous behavior. It includes a convenientcarrying bag. - 2 Outline Cards. The first of these quick-reference cards outlines sampling procedures, and the second gives clear directions for scoring. - 2 Instructional Videos. The first of these instructional videotapes shows how to conduct sampling; the second shows how to rate behaviors from the Behavior Sample and convert the information into scores.
