EBD Resources in the DFW area

I decided to share some resources that I know of in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for youth with emotional or behavioral disorders (EBD). Early detection and prevention methods are essential in preventing any escalation in adverse or antisocial behavior. Increased awareness regarding mental health in classrooms along with the appropriate resources and training for teachers/staff will contribute to an environment more conducive to learning. I comprised this list of resources after a classmate asked if I could create one for her and a resource teacher. I have provided the brief list of resources below.

Resources:

PBIS.org (Wealth of information regarding positive behavioral interventions & supports and the social, emotional, and academic outcomes for students with disabilities. )

Behaviordisorder.org (Offers information on behavior disorders, conduct disorders, and other behavior problems.)

Kidsmentalhealth.org (Information provided on a variety of different disabilities and mental illness.)
