Behavioral Disorders, v27 n2 p168-78 Feb 2002
The original authors of an article proposing a new medical model of special education for children with emotional or behavioral disorders respond to comments by considering: (1) the role of psychiatric diagnosis in special education, (2) the relative efficacy of behavioral versus psychopharmacologic treatment, and (3) the nature of interdisciplinary care. They urge combing behavioral and psychopharmacologic interventions. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
