Teacher Education and Professional Development


Strategies of classroom intervention for emotional/behavioral disordered (EBD) children were investigated. The definition of EBD is provided, in addition to background information concerning EBD, including manifestation of EBD, possible causes, racial and gender trends, and current levels of education achieved by EBD students. Through a review of literature, a number of intervention strategies were found to be effective, including behavior management systems, social skills instruction, modification of instruction and instructional materials, peer support, self-evaluation, and increased opportunity to respond. The collaborated information is intended to be used by educators in order to increase the EBD student's chance for academic success.
