Emotional Disability

A diagnosis of emotional disturbance means that the child exhibits one or more of the following characteristics to a marked degree and over an extended period of time:

  • difficulties in learning that cannot be explained by intellectual, sensory, or health impairments;
  • problems relating to children and adults;
  • inappropriate types of behavior or feelings under normal circumstances;
  • a general mood of unhappiness and depression;
  • a tendency to develop physical symptoms, pains, or fears associated with personal or social problems.

There should be evidence that the child's behavior is not the result of a temporary reaction to home, school, or community situations.
