Emotional Disturbance Eligibility

This workshop will identify the specific challenges of determining the eligibility of the emotionally disturbed child that can result in misidentification. The controversy of this eligibility with specific emphasis on delineating between social maladjustment, conduct disorder and emotional disturbance will be discussed. In addition, Dr. Morrison will discuss the integration of various assessment methods that would support eligibility.

Dr. David Morrision, Ed.D, is a LEP and currently is a professor at Azusa Pacific University. He has over 30 years of experience providing services in a variety of mental health settings and has specialization in Clinical Neuropsychology. He was the co-founder and clinical director of a non-public school that provided educational services for severely emotionally disturbed youth. He has extensive experience in residential group home settings and co-founded the first RCL 14 residential facility on the grounds of a psychiatric hospital in California.
