Alaina Hovan's insight:

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.

About Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) & Conduct Disorder (CD) : Professional Learning Board

About Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) & Conduct Disorder (CD) : Professional Learning Board | Emotionally Disturbed | Scoop.it
Oppositional Defiant Disorder may start as early as the preschool years, while Conduct Disorder generally appears when children are older.
Alaina Hovan's insight:

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.

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.
