Decreases Impulsivity, Hyperactivity
In a 2001-2002 research study, teachers and administrators in a Florida elementary school (K-6th) identified 12 students as the most difficult and assessed them using the Behavioral Assessment System for Children (BASC). The BASC measures adaptive and problem behaviors in school.
Teachers and administrators nominated students for this study based on the chronic number of discipline referrals and high amount of school resources being utilized for their behavior disruptions. With the implementation of Conscious Discipline, 75% of the students moved from an “atypical” to a “normal” range based on the pre- and post- assessment, achieving significant improvement in the following areas: hyperactivity, aggressiveness and impulsivity.
