This monograph addresses issues concerned with modifications of general education instructional procedures and curriculum for students with emotional or behavioral disorders. It begins by defining the general education curriculum and presenting information on how students with E/BD currently fare, both academically and socially, compared to peers without disabilities. It then reviews the literature regarding efforts to modify and adapt curricular materials for students with E/BD. This is followed by discussion of the limitations of the intervention efforts validated to date and a proposal for the development of more global intervention approaches with a more generalized effect on student performance. Modifications to classroom instructional interactions and supplemental curricular materials are suggested, such as interspersing tasks that children can do well with more difficult or aversive tasks and supplemental reading intervention. The Phonological Awareness Training for Reading program is highlighted and examples of materials and instructional techniques are offered throughout. (Contains approximately 100 references.) (DB)
