Feature Issue on Fostering Success in School and Beyond for Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders

Published by the Institute on Community Integration (UCEDD) and the Research and Training Center on Community Living, College of Education and Human Development, University of Minnesota • Volume 18 • Number 2 • Spring 2005

From the Editors

In today’s K-12 schools, educators must effectively work with increasingly diverse populations in their classrooms. This includes educating students identified as having emotional/behavioral disorders (EBD) in the general education classrooms and ensuring their inclusion in all aspects of the school community. This can be a challenging task for several reasons. To effectively educate students with EBD there must be collaboration between all the instructional and administrative staff in the school; everyone must be “on the same page” in implementing prevention and intervention efforts. In addition, there must be a willingness on the part of teachers to explore new teaching methods that more actively engage students with EBD. Ongoing staff development and training are needed to update and maintain educator skills in working with students with EBD. And sufficient resources must be available at the school and district level to sustain programming. This Impact describes how these and other challenges are being addressed around the country, and offers strategies that have been demonstrated to improve positive educational and social outcomes for students with EBD in today’s K-12 schools.
