Students with Emotional Disturbance issues can learn and thrive in a classroom setting if proper strategies are implemented. Special Education can be beneficial if the right Teacher is in place along with the necessary support. Emotional Disturbance can fall under many levels like clinical and as well behavioral. My focus is behavior where we have to implement in class strategies. Clinical means that student is under the Doctors care and certain medicine may be administered so the behavior will not be extreme. Whether clinical or behavioral as special ed teachers will have to find a way to teach that student. I have to admit it's trial and error and sometimes it can be overwhelming, yet rewarding. If we focus on the long road we won't be too discourage but we have to remember that these are kids. Sometimes due to their behavior, we forget that they are kids in need of adults who will educate them without being fearful of them. Is teaching an emotional disturbed student easy? NO! That's why in the school district there are always openings for the behavior class. However, we must rise to the challenge and empower these kids who have been viewed as powerless.
