National Needs Analysis in Behavior Disorders: Severe Behavior Disorders.
Grosenick, Judith K.; Huntze, Sharon L.
The report examines the status of education for children with severe behavior disorders. Analysis of Annual Program Plans, compliance evaluations, and interviews with state officials provided results in five areas (sample findings in parentheses): definitions (there was great concern over the term "seriously emotionally disturbed" as defined in P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act); human resources (in the six states visited, shortages of teachers for only the severely behavior disordered ranged from 1% to 12%); preservice and inservice training (there is a need to rethink the entire process of inservice education ); service delivery (being severely behavior disordered appears more likely to result in removal from school than any other disability); and other issues such as single line of authority/interagency agreements, national collaborative efforts, related services, and connections with services for autistic students.
