Both the DECA & DESSA were included in the Handbook of Social and Emotional Learning. The handbook compiles information from the best-regarded scientists in the field of social and emotional learning. The DESSA was identified as the top alignment measure, covering every core SEL competency highlighted.
Los Angeles Public Schools, the second-largest public school district in the USA, began piloting the DESSA.
The YMCA of the USA recommended use of the DESSA in all YMCA programs across the country.
