'Emotional Disturbance' Among Vt. Students: What It Means And How The State Helps

Jan 9, 2018

Vermont has the highest rate in the country of students identified as having an "emotional disturbance." We're talking about what is actually covered by that term, and what's being done inside and out of the state's special education system to help the kids who need it most.

We're joined by Dylan McNamara, co-director of student support services at the Essex Westford school district, and by Jesse Suter, interim director of the Center on Disability & Community Inclusion at the University of Vermont.
