Teachers and Parents Unite to Help the Emotionally Disabled Child


When dealing with a child with an emotional disability a parent must be aware of the manipulations and the lying that goes on with the disability in some of these children. Some children with emotional disabilities will tend to be sick or not feel well so they don't have to go to school. Of course this is an occasional legitimate occurrence when it is a real sickness, but if the absenteeism becomes habitual, the parents need to intercede with the children and make sure they get to school for their education.

The same applies goes for teachers to have students with emotional disabilities in the classroom. The constant wanting to use the restroom, to get a drink of water, or to do anything but the work that is presented before them, is a common characteristic of student with emotional disabilities. Start logging down how many times the student has asked to leave the room during the class period. If the parent has questions about why you are limiting bathroom use or the ability to get a drink of water, you can show them the number of times the child uses an excuse to leave the classroom.

As with all encounters was emotionally disabled child, the teacher and the parent must become a united team to divert the behavior or to modify the behavior at home and at school. If one side of the team does not play ball, the child will find the easiest person to manipulate and get their way which is adversely hurting their education in the long run.
