Special Education Needs and Adolescent Drug Taking Behaviour (Paperback) Patrick McCrystal (author), Grace Cunningham (author), Emer Mckiernan (author). This book covers the developmental and health problems unique to the adolescent period of life.

Adolescents who are in special education (SE) and/or live in residential youth care institutions (RYC) are characterized by learning disabilities, behavioral and/or emotional problems and appear to be at higher risk for a number of risk behaviors, including problematic substance use [1, 4, 9, 21].However, empirical studies on the prevalence of substance use in these groups are Cited by: Programs should be developed to take into account the different developmental needs based on the age of the adolescent; younger adolescents have different needs than older adolescents.

This article, co-written with school attorney Michael Waldspurger, clarifies the relationship between substance use and special education.

Many adolescents who abuse drugs have a history of physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse or other trauma. Adolescent substance use needs to be identified and addressed as soon as possible. Drugs can have long-lasting effects on the developing brain and may interfere with family, positive peer relationships, and school performance.

There is an understanding that all behaviour is for a reason, thus challenging behaviour serves a function for the child or adolescent with special needs.

PBS utilises the techniques of applied behaviour analysis, where observable behaviour is objectively analysed to make changes to the challenging behaviours. The book is especially useful for special education teachers.
