Supported Education Toolkit 3.0
Updated: Nov 19, 2018
The evidence for supported education thus far does not constrain program development into one narrow model. Therefore, the aim of the KU SEd fidelity scale is to provide a principle-driven model that is likely to be of use in a variety of settings and programs. As used here "fidelity" means concordance with principles rather than adherence to key elements of programs proven effective.
The KU Supported Education fidelity scale was initially developed through using an expert panel of six researchers, a review of other fidelity scales currently available, individual interviews (with general consumers, students with psychiatric disabilities, community mental health staff, and community college staff), three large focus groups, and a review of the literature. The KU SEd fidelity scale has been piloted at three separate community mental health centers in Kansas and revised based on the piloting process in these centers. The scale has also been adopted by SAMHSA and has been used by other supported education agencies across the country.
