Tune In to Online Chat on Adolescents with Behavioral Disorders

On Wednesday, Sept. 17, between 1 and 2 p.m., I'll be moderating an online chat with Professors Lee Kern and Richard White on effective strategies for adolescents with behavioral disorders.

This is a follow-up to an article I wrote earlier this month on the topic. Kern is leading a new federal effort that will develop a set of "best practices" for dealing with these students' special needs, and White is the president of the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders, a division of the Council for Exceptional Children.

No special equipment is needed to join the chat, just a computer with an Internet connection. When the chat is over, I will update this post with a transcript for those who cannot join live.

Edited to add: Here's the transcript.
