Clip to ScrapBook #6

Of course every student is different, but IME most of my ED students have been bright but end up behind due to missed instruction. They're constantly in the office, suspended, out of the room, etc. Even when they're in the room, it's not like they're learning when they're throwing a fit. Natural smarts can only get you so far. I've only had one student in my career who I think truly had an emotional disability AND a learning disability.

Like the pp said, the academics end up getting put on a back burner because you have to try to intervene with the behavior in order to get the student to access the instruction in the first place. The best academic intervention in the world has no impact on someone who isn't able to access the instruction due to their behavior.
