Forness, Steven R.; Kavale, Kenneth A.
Behavioral Disorders, v25 n3 p264-69 May 2000
This article reviews the development and current status of alternatives to the federal definition of emotional disturbance or behavior disorders. It notes that several states are now revising their own terminologies or definitions in response to the 1997 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that dropped the term "seriously" from the definition.
