boy struggles with schoolworkMany kids with learning disabilities develop behavior problems.

If the school doesn’t teach them the skills they need, they become angry, frustrated, and depressed. Then the school labels them as behavior disordered or emotionally disturbed (ED).

In most states, the kids who get the poorest quality special ed services are kids with an ED label.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you learn that you cannot develop strategies to deal with problem behaviors until you know the cause. Find out how to get the data you need to tackle behavior problems successfully.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
