Status and Change in State Administrative Definitions of Behavior Disorder
Douglas Cullinan, Michael H. Epstein, Daniel McLinden
ABSTRACT: State definitions of behavior disorder were analyzed and compared to results of a survey completed several years ago. In many ways the definitions remained constant,but important changes were also noted. One significant development in state definitions of behavior disorder was a trend toward similarity to the federal term and definition of “seriously emotionally disturbed.” Implications for educators of the behaviorally disordered were discussed.
