Outcomes

The NHS Schools currently operate 17 licensed private academic schools serving 368 students in 117 different school districts, and 50 counties across Pennsylvania. Our goal is to teach students the skills necessary for success in the general education setting and to transition them, as appropriate, back to a less restrictive environment where they can access general education with typical peers in their home school district or assure they achieve high school graduation.

ECLIPSE Outcomes
EclipseECLIPSE Model Behavior Indicator Data Sheet

Data collection consists of 10 behavior targets that are typical behavioral issues related to individuals with ASD and are specifically addressed through the ECLIPSE curriculum. Eight of these targeted behaviors are maladaptive (i.e. verbally interrupts group/activity, physical aggression, overreacting to problems) and two indicators that are positive (i.e. asking for help, attempting to problem solve).
ECLIPSE  Model Behavior Indicator Data Sheet

For the 2012-2013 school year, there were 114 students from 13 NHS Schools participating in The ECLIPSE Model outcomes study. Outcomes are measured by behavioral data samples taken during class time, as well as, pre and post scores from standardized assessments BASC-2, Parent BRIEF and Teacher BRIEF.
