    Abstract

    The findings from this study include subject area covering a range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology, health, and education. This study also includes secondary research from books, journals, and government publications. This dissertation reveals that the school environment may exacerbate or cause problems for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties [EBD]. This dissertation recommends that children with EBD would benefit from a consistent whole school approach to behaviour, that is embedded in knowledge and understanding of a child’s individual make-up. This includes consideration for the child’s home culture, community they live in and their personal circumstances.
    The findings in this study found that professional training from outside agencies that are knowledgeable in children’s EBD would be beneficial for both the school staff and the child. This may ensure a consistent approach, and one that is based on specific evidence. The theory and methods on behaviour and the nature of EBD are explored in this study.
