It is important to also note the contemporary critique of these categories. There is a growing literature that questions the ways in which children and young people are being diagnosed with behavior disorders such as ADHD. See the futher reading below.Vharwood 04:57, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

No citations given in the article. -- Scarpy (talk) 00:33, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Guide to teachers?[edit]

Why is this in here? Wikipedia is not a self-help guide for the teaching profession. It needs removing. --Skellyscribbles (talk) 22:16, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Then why is anything here? Wikipedia may as well not be a guide for anything or anyone. Why have facts about countries and people? (Eford5 (talk) 14:27, 14 April 2011 (UTC))

It's in here because this is an encyclopedia and emotional and behavioral disorder is an entry. A bonafide one, mind you, if you'll take the time to look at special education.

I agree with Steele but...[edit]

I think that allowing so much space for behavioural approaches to EBD is a mistake. There is a large body of work that suggests practices informed by attachment theory are far more effecive when working with children who suffer from EBD. Eg Geddes’ simple but powerful premise: “behaviour has meaning”, and “The relationship between teacher and pupil is fraught with meaning. It is a relationship which is imbued with attachment significance and affected by unconscious processes.", or Perry and Szalavitz: “We need to recognise that our current policies and practices do not put relationships first.” likewise Bombèr: “Their key role is to form a relationship with the child.” —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:49, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

5 models of EBD[edit]

To make this page more relevant, I suggest adding information about the 5 models of EBD and possibly linking them to their own separate pages. The 5 models include: Biophysical, Psychodynamic, Cognitive, Behavioral, and Ecological. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eford5 (talkcontribs) 14:30, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

THat's fine, but there's still no citations. Moreover, there seems to be a lack of reliable sources, no mention of special education and many generalities. Jimsteele9999 (talk) 16:33, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

As I edit it, I will continue to add the references and citations. The first source I used is a text book for Emotional and Behavioral Disorders which is highly reliable and full of much information on the five models. Feel free to add/delete anything I put and read the text book I have referenced. It's very interesting information.Eford5 (talk) 23:39, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

This needed serious work[edit]

Just spent hours working on this page instead of my dissertation...hope it helps.

EBD and IEP[edit]

This is flat out incorrect students with emotional and Behavioral disorders can get IEP's. Stating that they wouldn't be eligible is not accurate. I had an IEP and I was classified as a student who fell under EBD there was a semi large group of other students in my school under that classification with IEP's and the program we were in was part of one that existed in many school throughout the county. hundreds of students. I'm not sure where the information came from but The first link on the page is to Categories of disability and it includes emotional disabilities as one of those that qualifies for special education and related services. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RLShepherd (talkcontribs) 06:00, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you're talking about... the IDEA includes EBD as one of their disability classifications, and the EBD page currently states: "Emotional and behavioral disorders . . . refer to a disability classification used in educational settings that allows educational institutions to provide special education and related services to students that have poor social or academic adjustment that cannot be better explained by biological abnormalities or a developmental disability. The classification is often given to students that need individualized behavior supports to receive a free and appropriate public education, but would not be eligible for an individualized education program under another disability category of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)." It says that they are eligible for IEPs, but would more likely get an IEP under another disability classification if their behavior problems were due to, say, an autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability. I think you misinterpreted the introductory paragraph. I sit in on IEP meetings for students with EBD regularly. Wolololol (talk) 03:22, 5 March 2016 (UTC)Wolololol
