Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the state of literature on self-management interventions for addressing student behavior concerns.
  2. learn key self-management intervention components that influence positive student effects.
  3. uncover for whom and under what context self-management interventions are most effective.


Self-management (SM) interventions are often utilized within schools to address student’s challenging behaviors and academic concerns. The current presentation will present results of a meta-analysis focused on: (a) assessing the impact of SM intervention on school-aged children’s academic and behavioral outcomes, (b) determining what components differentially affect positive student outcomes, and (c) evaluating if results are moderated by student characteristics (i.e., race, age/grade, gender).
