Can the Language "Social Maladjustment" in the SED Definition Be Ignored?

pp. 21—22

I have no doubt about the psychological correctness of Skiba and Grizzle’s (1991) article. I am confident the part of their article dealing with the psychologist’s concerns about educating students with behavior disorders is well founded. I would not - could not - critique that aspect of the article. I am not a psychologist. I would, however, paraphrase some sage advice: Render unto the psychologist that which is psychological analysis, and render unto the attorney that which is legal analysis. My differences with Skiba and Grizzle (1991) are not with their psychological analyses; my differences are with the legal analyses.
