C. Michael Nelson & Cheryll A. Pearson, the authors of The Council for Exceptional Children's (CEC) newest monograph, INTEGRATING SERVICES FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH WITH EMOTIONAL & BEHAVIORAL DISORDERS present a compelling rationale for the importance of collaborative interagency service delivery for children & youth with emotional & behavioral disorders (EBD). The issues discussed in the book are central to the nation's ability to meet the educational goals & objectives outlined in America 2000; they are especially relevant to the National Goals of preparing students for responsible citizenship & of creating a drug-free, non-violent & disciplined learning environment for students. In this monograph, Drs. Nelson & Pearson offer invaluable guidance to agency & program planners on such issues as why interagency programs & services are needed, characteristics of children & youth with EBD, the benefits of collaborative programs, & the legislation, litigation, funding mechanisms & advocacy issues affecting interagency coordination. This monograph is the first in a series entitled CURRENT ISSUES IN SPECIAL EDUCATION, which is developed by the ERIC/OSEP Special Project & published by The Council for Exceptional Children. The ERIC/OSEP Special Project is funded by the U.S. Office of Special Educatio n Programs through CEC's ERIC clearinghouse on Handicapped & Gifted Children.
