Strategies for Students with Behavioral Issues Prior to Referral for Special Education Assessment
Vallejos, Antoinette Martinez
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, Alliant International University, San Diego
By law, public schools need to exhaust all general education services prior to referral for special education services (IDEA, 1990). Unfortunately, many teachers are unaware of the pre-referral interventions they can employ to teach children displaying behavior problems. The review of literature focused on the following: (a) legislative history, (b) assessment for special education eligibility under the category of emotional disturbance, (c) disproportionate representation of minorities in special education, (d) pre-referral models, and (e) intervention strategies for students with behavioral and emotional problems. This project helped determine that a presentation regarding emotional disturbance criteria and pre-referral interventions is useful and beneficial to general education teachers who work with students with behavioral issues to help provide appropriate referrals for special education assessment.
