A Programming Guide for Emotional Disturbance. Bulletin No. 94324.
This guide defines the state of the art in Wisconsin's programming for students with emotional disturbances (ED). The guide begins with an overview of the ED assessment process, including screening, referral, multidisciplinary teams, eligibility criteria, and individualized education programs. A chapter on setting up service programs discusses facilities, scheduling, selecting materials, adapting and modifying materials and instruction, student records and confidentiality, communication, working with special education program aides, and stress management. Behavior management information and guidelines for affective education are presented. A section on academic instruction outlines teaching strategies, use of time, strategies for grouping students, grades, supporting students in the general education environment, and career and vocational education/transition. A final chapter of miscellaneous items covers homebound students, disciplinary exclusion, and inclusion. Lists of references and suggested resources accompany many chapters. Appendix A provides tips from teachers on dealing with 13 frequently encountered situations. Other appendixes provide a school intervention checklist, eligibility criteria, state regulations, and reprints of several issues of a Wisconsin bulletin titled "Exceptional Education Information Update."
