It is a slippery slope in my opinion when trying to identify behavioral issues in students. I do however think that most teachers may become caught up in looking for these markers. For example terms like Attention Deficit Disorder are thrown about in common conversation. Referrals are out the door and it seems like such a quick process. I think as teachers we have to mindful of each action and make the best decision for the student. Severe issues will be significantly noticeable in my humble opinion. Is anyone familiar with how this issues are diagnosed?
