This monograph discusses using collaboration and consultation to teach children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) in the general education classroom. After an introductory chapter, Chapter 2, "Collaboration and Consultation: Promises and Limitations," compares collaboration and consultation as they relate to serving students with EBD. The characteristics of the population with EBD and teacher perspectives on the inclusion of students with EBD in general education classes are discussed, including their concerns about the efficacy of collaboration. Chapter 3, "The Role of Functional Assessment in Collaboration and Consultation," explores the emergent practice of functional assessment as an essential tool for effective consultation. The process of functional assessment and functional replacement training are described. Chapter 4, "Guidelines for Consultation," explores practical ways to apply functional assessment procedures in the collaborative consultation processes and describes four interrelated components (ecological factors, longitudinal programming, focused interventions, and reactive strategies) and associated interventions of effective behavioral plans. Chapter 5, "Systems-Level Collaborative Consultation," provides an overview of the procedures and processes that characterize positive behavior support for all students. The role of the special educator in achieving a collaborative and comprehensive systems-level approach to educating students with EBD is highlighted. (CR)
