This chart found on this website is the first tool I have found that effectively explains to me the difference between Socially Maladjusted and Emotionally Disturbed. As a SEAC teacher, I am able to see characteristics of each in my students, however for many I see that the ED tendancies are more prevalent.
This article acknowledges the differences between social maladjustment and emotional disturbance. It effectively demonstrates the need for programs in schools that focus on teaching appropriate social skills.
This is a VERY comprehensive document that gives a better understanding as to what can and cannot be diagnosed as ED. Also- it does a great job addressing why social maladjustment does not get diagnosed in schools and why ED does get diagnosed.
Oppositional Defiant Disorder may start as early as the preschool years, while Conduct Disorder generally appears when children are older.

This begs the question of any difference between ED, ODD and CD. In other articles it states that CD is under the umbrella of Emotionally Disturbed. However- to me it seems like the Conduct Disorder fits more with Socially Maladjusted characteristics than those of a child that might qualify as ED in a school setting.
The mental health of our children is a natural and important concern for us all. The fact is, many mental disorders have their beginnings in childhood or adolescence, yet may go undiagnosed and untreated for years.
Alaina Hovan's insight:
This website gives a very good brief overview of ED, its definition through IDEA and some general characteristics. It is interesting to note that it quotes NAMI stating a need to follow and individualized treatment plan.
