Identifying & Assessing Students with Emotional Disturbance provides school psychologists with the knowledge and tools they need to accurately identify, assess, and support students with emotional disturbance. This essential resource contains clear information, practical guidance, and up-to-date research that will help school psychologists improve outcomes for all students. The book clarifies what constitutes emotional disturbance in educational settings, how it differs from the clinical definition, and how to assess and intervene effectively so students learn and thrive. It prepares current (in-service) and aspiring (graduate-level pre-service) school psychologists to:

    • Differentiate social maladjustment from emotional disturbance (includes clear coverage of the exclusionary clause)
    • Understand the RTI model as it relates to identification of behavioral and emotional issues
    • Meet the legal requirements for assessment procedures
    • Determine eligibility for the "emotional disturbance" identification
    • Ensure meaningful individualized educational programs for students
    • Help teachers develop classroom supports that address the needs of students with emotional disturbance

The book is full of practical features, including brief vignettes and excerpts from federal- and state-level court findings help illuminate the educational definition of emotional disturbance, and practical tables and charts aid with the assessment process and determining eligibility.
