Assessment for Effective Intervention, v26 n1 p29-39 Fall 2001
This article examines factors associated with the substantial under-identification, referral and service for students with emotional-behavioral adjustment problems (EBD). The validity of the EBD categorical certification is questioned. Disincentives to identification of behavior disorders are noted. It concludes that schools should abandon the EBD certification process to focus instead on assessing behaviorally at-risk students along internalizing-externalizing and severity dimensions.
