Further Examining the Triangle Tip: Improving Support for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Needs

Psychology in the Schools, v46 n1 p18-32 Jan 2009
Students identified as having emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) experience the poorest educational outcomes among any disability group. Although models of intervention and corresponding evidence-based practices continue to advance, the promise of new approaches has failed to reach the general population of students with EBD. In this article, we visit possible explanations for these continued poor outcomes. Breakdowns along several systems are discussed, including placement and related practices as well as the absence of individualized approaches. In addition, we offer suggestions for improvement.
