How We Prevent the Prevention of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.
Kauffman, James M.
Exceptional Children, v65 n4 p448-68 Sum 1999
Identifies ways in which practices and attitudes work against the prevention of emotional and behavioral disorders in students. These include an overriding concern for labels and stigma, objections to a medical model and failure-driven services, a preference for false negatives over false positives, proposals for a "paradigm shift," and statements that special education is ineffective.
