Students with emotional and behavioral disorders often experience poor academic and social outcomes in school. These outcomes lead to a variety of difficulties later in life, which include high rates of dropping out, unemployment, and difficulties with relationships. Developing interventions for adolescents with EBD is a difficult task. However, this particular age range does provide for an opportunity to change the trajectory of student outcomes. Effective programming for this group must include assessment, as well as interventions that can be implemented in general education settings, where students with EBD spend the majority of their school time. In this workshop you will learn methods to assess and intervene with adolescents with EBD/at risk for EBD in general education settings.
1. After completing this session, you will be able to describe the academic, social, and behavioral difficulties experienced by students with EBD.
2. After completing this session, you will be able to describe methods to assess function of student behavior, as well as assess the social context of the classroom.
3. After completing this session, you will be able to describe interventions to increase academic engagement, which include instructional modifications and direct instruction.
4. After completing this session, you will be able to describe interventions that increase appropriate classroom behavior.
5. After completing this session, you will be able to develop interventions that leverage the social dynamics that occur in classrooms in order to increase appropriate social functioning.
6. After completing this session, you will be able to describe methods to support and train general education teachers in their efforts to help students with EBD.

David Lee, Phd, BCBA-D, received a doctorate in special education from Purdue University and has been the Academic Director of the Applied Behavior Analysis Program, Penn State, University Park, PA since 2005. His research focuses on strategies to help students with emotional/behavioral disorders (EBD), or at risk for EBD, overcome academic performance deficits.
“The overarching question asked in my research is, “How can we help children/adolescents, who typically do not engage in academic tasks, begin and engage in those tasks for longer periods of time in order to produce more fluent performance?” Students who refuse to engage in academic or social activities are at risk for failure. In order to learn any skill, whether it be reading, math, or playing a musical instrument for that matter, one must first make contact with the relevant materials and then remain at high levels of engagement as they practice the skill. Unfortunately, many students with EBD fail to engage in academic activities, which leads to a continuous cycle of frustration, lack of engagement, and ultimately academic failure. My research aim is to break this cycle.”
