Understanding the Problem

A significant number of American children are struggling with emotional disturbances and the myriad issues it creates in their lives. These illnesses create problems with sleep, attention, concentration, motivation, self-control, peer relationships, and many other areas that directly affect their ability to function in an academic setting. Because these symptoms and issues are transparent, meaning the child doesn’t show external physical deformities, broken limbs, lab test abnormalities, these children “look” like “typical” children. The problems they experience are often then deemed to be a function of poor parenting, lack of discipline, or just inherently “bad” kids. Societal stigma plays a large part in the general lack of accurate public knowledge about mental illness.

The lack of accurate knowledge about childhood emotional disturbances and  mental illnesses, their symptoms, treatments, and effects on one’s functioning create barriers for children with these illnesses as they typically need specialized services and plans to allow them to function successfully in an academic setting.
