Emotional Disturbance may be the most misunderstood mental disability in the field of Special Education. Intervention plans are usually developed by Special Education teachers and school psychologists and used for the purpose of helping the student stay calm and focused in regular education classes. The purpose of this research is to challenge the idea of the containment of students that carry this label and study strategies and approaches that teach students the skills they need to not only be able to stay in a general education class, but to flourish and have successful academic careers.
