Abstract:

This synthesis of the literature examines the characteristics of children with conduct disorders and the special education placement dilemmas they present. The paper distinguishes among the terms delinquency, social maladjustment, conduct disorder, and behavioral disorder. The paper discusses eligibility of students with conduct disorders for services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (idea) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Students with conduct disorders are described as falling into a "boundary area," as the federal definition of serious emotional disturbance excludes students who are socially maladjusted, while conduct disorders have long been considered to be a mental impairment in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual and thus would be eligible for services under Section 504. The paper describes school approaches to more effectively meet students' needs, categorized as universal interventions, selected interventions, functional curriculum and a vocational training program, alternative programs or alternative schools, and diversion programs. Strategies are recommended for improving services to these children and their families, including, among others: revise the current federal definition of seriously emotionally disturbed; ensure that strong prereferral strategies are in place; provide for early identification and intervention; improve efforts to reach out to families; enhance collaboration among schools, mental health agencies, and other appropriate agencies; and improve training opportunities and collaboration among professionals. (Contains approximately 80 references.) (Jdd).
