Industry Reviews

"This book is an excellent overview of a very complex area. It is a useful guide to identifying and treating children with emotional and behavioral disabilities (EBD), and is particularly outstanding on topics related to the educational system and the numerous laws and policies surrounding the education of EBD children. This book will serve the field well."

-- Krista Kutash, Ph.D., Deputy Director and Associate Professor

"This serves as a great resource for educators who want to know more about youth with emotional and behavioral disorders and the needs of their families. I know I will draw from it in the future to orient new staff working with emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth."

-- Mary F. Sinclair, Ph.D.
