    First Published in 1998. Increasing pressure and new demands on LEAs, schools and their staff have led to an overall reduction in the number of special schools for children with EBD and a questioning of their place within the range of provision for these pupils. Recent attention has also been drawn by HMCI to the number of these schools which have failed to pass the OFSTED inspection process. This book is based on a national exanimation of special schools providing for pupils with EBD. The authors identify factors associated with good practice and offer advice on how schools can become more effective in providing for the country's most troubled and challenging pupils. They also highlight aspects of successful provision which can be applied in mainstream schools and pupil referral units.

    History, theory and effective practice; pupils and parents - who are they?; the characteristics of staff working in schools for pupils with EBD; some aspects of management; addressing pupil needs; physical provision; effective schooling for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
