Part of the Autism and Child Psychopathology Series book series (ACPS)


Students with disabilities and/or emotional or behavioral problems are at increased risk of poor academic performance, which is linked to a variety of long-term problems. In this overview, the interrelationship between academic success and childhood disorders will be described. Collaborative consultation within academic settings will be reviewed, followed by illustrations about various consultation models. Federal regulations (e.g., Section 504, IEP) for school-aged children with disabilities will be reviewed with an emphasis on understanding these regulations to guide consultative efforts. Examples of positive behavior interventions, accommodations, and modifications will be described and illustrated.
