The Daily Report Card

The Daily Report Card (DRC) is the most widely studied and frequently recommended classroom interventions for students with ADHD (U.S. Department of Education, 2008). Studies have documented the efficacy of the DRC when used individually or as part of a multi-component intervention system (Fabiano et al., 2010; Owens et al., 2008; Vannest et al., 2010; Wells et al., 2000).

Classroom Behavior Support

Through the Classroom Behavior Support (CBS) Project, the OHIO CIRS team supports teachers’ classroom management needs and improve student outcomes. The CIRS team is assessing the effectiveness of several professional development and consultation strategies to determine which best help teachers implement high quality Tier 1 and Tier 2 behavioral supports and produce positive outcomes for students.

The consultation strategies are designed to maximize the delivery of quality classroom interventions within the realities of a school day. Through this project, school districts in Central and Southeast Ohio can obtain individualized consultation for their teachers at no cost to school districts. If you are interested in having your district participate in this project contact
