When a student is inattentive, extremely anxious, or has an outright tantrum in the classroom, ascertaining the exact cause may be difficult, but it is a critical step in reaching and teaching the students who exhibit these behaviours. In Teaching Students With Emotional Disturbance, Ysseldyke and Algozzine show readers how to recognize the cognitive, academic, physical, communicational, and behavioural characteristics of several forms of emotional disturbance and offer specific strategies for responding to anxiety issues, opposition and non-compliance, tantrums, disruptiveness, inattention, task avoidance, and more.
o A pre-test and post-test to help readers assess their understanding about the origins of social and emotional difficulties and how they are best addressed
o Effective interventions and instructional adaptations for students who have emotional problems
o Trends and issues currently influencing how students with social and emotional problems are taught
o Key vocabulary terms
