Supporting general education teachers in working with students diagnosed with an emotional behavior disorder

Students with Emotional Behavior Disorder (EBD) are one of the most challenging and difficult student populations to work with. Additionally, according to Allday et al. (2012), teachers are not equipped to work with the challenges that students with EBD may present due to their lack of training, knowledge, and understanding of these specific students. School reform has recently focused on including all students with disabilities, including students with EBD in the general education setting. Inclusion of all students as stated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 2004 (IDEA) requires that students be included and are participating in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) which is the general education classroom.
 In order to provide necessary instruction, teachers need adequate information and training in working with students diagnosed as EBD. This project provided training in a series of three presentations on the topic of supporting students with EBD. The specific topics addressed were how students are diagnosed with EBD and the assessment process, a description of the EBD programs in the Elk Grove Unified School District, and strategies teachers can implement for students with EBD.
