Emotional Problems of the Learning Disabled.
Burns, Harriet P.
In discussing the problem of emotional and behavioral disturbance in children with learning disabilities (LD), the author suggests that teachers trained in LD are given little background in emotional problems, that LD texts contain minimal information about dealing with behavioral disturbance, and that the connection between LD and delinquency has been overstated. Other ways in which children with emotional problems are seen to be ill-served include the changing and frequently turbulent structure of educational settings. Educators and administrators are urged to take such actions as interpreting the field of LD realistically to the public and advocating behavior training for regular and special education teachers.
