It's Time To Move Beyond Academics & Start Screening For Social-Emotional Needs

If your school or district isn’t conducting universal screening for behavior, you’re missing an important part of a comprehensive RTI or MTSS process. This one simple change could allow you to more effectively identify & intervene with at-risk learners before disruptive behaviors interfere with learning.

The Reviews Are In...

The Emergent Tree Universal Behavior Screener has given us insights not only into our student needs, but our teacher and campus needs also. As a district behavior specialist I can support campuses by looking at their data to drive my professional development offerings and coaching approaches.

As a campus principal, I really relied on my staff to tell me when a student needed more supports. But sometimes by the time a staff contacted me, they were already so overwhelmed or frustrated with the behavior that they struggled to shift their thinking and try new things. The Universal Screener allows us to identify students before behavior has impacted the teacher or the classroom creating much more collaborative problem-solving teams and more effective intervention delivery.
We wanted our campuses to take a more data driven approach to MTSS, especially behaviorally. We were already screening for academic areas, but still relying on office discipline referrals to drive our behavior thinking. The Emergent Tree Universal Screener has given us more insight and a proactive approach to mirror our academic screening processes.
I'd describe the support provided by Emergent Tree staff as phenomenal because it is customized to meet our needs. They truly meet us where we are without judgment. Every Emergent Tree staff member has been helpful, resourceful, and patient. We truly value this partnership.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete a screening?

Screening times varies based on the number of students in a class.  Typically an elementary teacher could screen all their students in 20 minutes or less. A secondary teacher with more students may require additional time. Screener data is automatically saved so a teacher can take a break and come back at any time to continue the screening process.

Can multiple teachers complete the screener on each student?

Yes. Each campus will pick a screening model to determine what teachers will screen what students. Most elementary campuses screen just using the homeroom teacher. Some secondary campuses like to have additional teachers participate such as an academic teacher and a non-academic staff. 

Do students need to be present during the screening process?

Since teachers will be screening based on a rubric aligned to campus core-values or school-wide expectations, the Emergent Tree Screener does not require students to be present during the screening process.

Who can view/use the screening data?

Viewers can be customized by the campus and district. Each teacher will only see their own screening data. Campus leaders can assign staff that can download and view the campus-wide data. District staff can assign users that can view all or some of the campuses data in the district as well as download the district-wide report.
