Abstract

The term ‘emotional behavioural disorder’ (EBD) emerged in the 1960s when clinicians and educators recognised that some children display extremely inappropriate behaviours which require special educational accommodations. With the 1992 Disability Discrimination Act, followed by the 2005 Disability Standards for Education, school aged children with disabilities, including EBD, began to be enrolled in regular classrooms in Australia. Studies show that students with EBD can be very challenging for teachers, even causing some to leave the teaching profession. However, a Christian classroom, with a praying, caring and competent teacher may be the very place where these children learn to adapt their behaviour and discover Jesus. This chapter provides an understanding of EBD, its potential effect on teachers and appropriate strategies for children’s academic, social and faith development.
