Promising Practices for Effective Transition for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
Katsiyannis, Antonis; Zhang, Dalun; Mackiewicz, Sara Moore
Advances in Special Education (MS)
Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (E/BD) have been consistently experiencing dismal outcomes. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a brief overview of outcomes for this population, examine school-based instructional and behavioral strategies, and discuss transition related practices intended to improve present and future outcomes. It is recommended that while transition-specific practices are essential in maximizing the potential for success in post-school environments, it is also necessary to ensure that students with E/BD are engaged in school through evidence-based practices in early intervention/prevention, instructional, and behavioral interventions.
