Language Arts for the Emotionally Disturbed Child.
Garrett, John
In order for teachers to be of assistance to disturbed children it is necessary that they recognize behavioral manifestations indicative of emotional disturbances and become familiar with those approaches which have been attempted in in order to select the approach which appears most applicable to the individual child. The author describes the most common patterns of behavioral manifestations observed in the school, including patterns of acting-out behavior, withdrawn behavior, and psychotic behavior. Language arts for these children should have the same long-range goals as language arts for nonhandicapped children. Language arts for the various types of behavior already described are outlined. The author also suggests various educational and auxiliary services that would aid disturbed children. References are included. (Author/NH)
