EBD Blog is about Emotional and Behavioral Disorders of children and youths. In the US, this area of special education is often referred to as “emotional disturbance,” but we’re using the term EBD, as that one is more clearly descriptive and preferred by many leaders in the field. EBD Blog will also include content about related areas of disability, including Autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD or ADHD), and other similar topics. I (John Wills Lloyd) write most of the posts on EBD Blog; readers have had the good fortune of finding some original posts by guest blogger James M. Kauffman, too.
For fundamental information about EBD, a reader may consult our page about the basics (which was originally an entry for the encyclopedia, Encarta, that I wrote in the early 1990s). EBD Blog, which first appeared in January of 2005, originally ran from a server identified as johnl.edschool.virginia.edu, but I moved it to my own server a bit over a year after launching it. To correspond with me, write to John _at_ JohnWillsLloyd.com.
My friend and sometimes collaborator (and poker coach) Doug Cullinan says that I should straighten my tie before I allow folks to take pictures of me. That’s an old photo of me, when I had hair. I’ll substitute a newer one some day.
