Factors that Affect the Success of Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders in Inclusive Placements
Naomi Arseneau M.S. Ed
Over the last several decades, inclusive placements for students with disabilities have become increasingly common. Although benefits are associated with inclusion, questions remain about the effectiveness of these placements for students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders (E/BD).
