Abstract

The current study researched the possible relationship between military deployment and child behaviors. Participants in the study were students in grades Kindergarten through sixth grade. Parents and teachers also participated in the study by providing information about their children/students. Parents of children in the study were asked to complete the Parent Rating Scale from the Behavior Assessment System for Children-Third Edition, while teachers were asked to complete the Teacher Rating Scale. Ratings of problem behaviors as well as adaptive behaviors were analyzed. Results suggest that military children may have more internalizing behaviors as rated by their parents and that these may be further exaggerated the more separation due to combat deployment that the child has experienced. The purpose of the study was to show that there is an increased need for education and awareness of our military-connected students and supports for these students and their families.
