Behaviors  linked  to  these  disorders  and  assessment  and  management  strategies  for  the classroom  5.)  School-­based  services,  parent  communication,  and  possible  socially  related issues.  Through  class  discussion,  reflection,  readings,  and  assignments,  students  will examine  the  impact  of  neurological  and  emotional  disorders  on  learning  in  America.
