Van der Worp-van der Kamp, L.; Bijstra, J. O.; Pijl, S. J.; Post, W. J.; Minnaert, A. E. M. G. – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2018
The on-going academic delay of students with emotional and behavioural disorders (EBD) in special education (SE) is concerning. While students with EBD are capable of acquiring fair academic skills, these outcomes are still not being realised on a larger scale. A plausible explanation for these meagre results might lie in a shortage of instruction…
