Neuropsychology and Behavior Disorders in Children and Youth

  • Steven D. Sherrets


Estimates of the incidence of behavior disorders in school-aged populations varies from a high of 20% to 30% to a low of 1.5% to 3% (Wood & Zabel, 1978). One has but to read the daily newspaper or hear the latest statistics on juvenile delinquency to realize this is a growing problem. Arrests of youth for all crimes rose 138% from 1960 to 1974, and 254% for the violent crimes of murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault (Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1974). Certainly not all behavior-disordered youth appear in the criminal statistics. Numerous laws, the most recent of which is P.L. 94-142 (The Education of All Handicapped Children’s Act of 1975), mandate educational programs for all children regardless of handicapping condition. This has resulted in many behavior-disordered individuals being returned or maintained in the public school classroom and the development of a growing concern for understanding the causes and treatments of behavioral problems. Despite the high frequency of occurrence, serious research into either etiologies or treatment of this group of children did not occur with any frequency until the end of World War II (Rie, 1971).
