The variability in recess periods in the United States has become more important since the passing of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) (2001).

Henricsson and Rydell (2004) have noted that self-perception is formed through interactions with others and the reduced number of positive interactions children with behavior problems experience put them at risk for low-self esteem. Henricsson and Rydell (2004) also note teacher criticism is associated with student stress, increased feelings of helplessness, and increased negative self-judgments. Many children with severe behavior problems have significant emotional trauma, serious emotional losses, and deficits in social skills. These problems are often never officially diagnosed or professionally treated despite theeffects on the children. Kehel, Bray, and Theodore (2004... ... middle of paper ... ... Abrams, L., & Vo, A.
Many children come to school with behavior problems that impede their learning and disrupt the the learning of other children. As early as preschool as many as twenty-five percent of children demonstrate problematic behaviors which place them at risk for future negative school experiences (Conroy, M., Sutherland, K., Haydon, T., Stormont, M., & Harmon, J, 2009). These children exhibit aggression, defiance, bullying of others, poor work habits, and acting out in class. Overtime these behaviors become chronic for some students and cyclical patterns of poor behavior, reactionary discipline, failed relationships with staff and peers, low self-esteem, and poor academic performance plague these children. Many teachers feel frustrated as they spend the majority of their classroom management time on the same few children each day.
Literature Review The study examines the various interventions used for students with emotional disturbance and how studies have progressed in the understanding of working with students with behavioral needs. It is critical to understand that many of these individuals exhibit disturbing behaviors, because they have a suspected or identified disability. Some individuals may have behavioral difficulties because of environmental factors and when factors change, due to academic or emotional needs not being met, they may learn to behave in appropriate ways. Additionally, they will learn very quickly that their disability is not accepted by others; even by those that love them. The disapproval is not cognizant of the individual’s lack of ability to control the behavior.

The issue of mainstream schools and special need schools was interesting area of understanding when working at special education schools. It is an interesting topic of debate when understandings the reasons for and against segregating students with special needs from those students without. This issue has been highlighted in many papers, specifically the research by Avramidis et. al. (2000, pp277-279) who highlights perspectives from teachers from the UK, USA and Australia about the integration of students with special needs into ‘ordinary schools’.

Early identification and treatment are important due to the serious consequences of school failure; depression, substance abuse, delinquency, and job failure are some of the serious consequences (CHADD). Students with ADHD may experience lower grades, failed grades, more expulsions, and increased drop out. The student’s hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention interfere with the challenges of school. According to the U.S. Department of Education (2003), Difficulty sustaining attention to a task may contribute to missing important details in assignments, daydreaming during lectures, and difficulty organizing details assignments.
