ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, North Carolina State University
The purpose of the study was to synthesize research studies that examined interventions used with students with emotional disturbance. Specific goals were to determine the extent to which interventions improve outcomes for students with emotional disturbance, whether emotional disturbance characteristics are related to the effectiveness of interventions, and identify which interventions are most effective for students with different emotional disturbance characteristics. An extensive search of the research studies identified 73 studies employing single case research design published in peer-reviewed journals between 1985 and 2010, which yielded 713 comparisons. Published single case research studies of interventions used with students with emotional disturbance indicate that interventions can change behavior and academic outcomes. Overall the effect was moderate. Students with specific ED characteristics may respond to intervention differently. Further, a disaggregation analysis indicated characteristics of ED are associated with variable effects for different intervention types. Some interventions may be more effective for students with some characteristics than others. Additional research is needed to confirm these findings.
