Opportunity to Participate in a Research Study

January 25, 2017

Dear CCBD members,

We are pleased to announce a survey study which seeks to determine the college preparation and job support needs of teachers who work with children with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD).  The study is being conducted by Leroy Smith for his Walden University dissertation.  The researcher invites participation by all teachers of students with Emotional Disturbance, Severe or Serious Emotional Disorders, Behavior Emotional Disabilities, Emotional Impairment, or Emotional Behavior Disorders.

CCBD recognizes the importance of empirical research in advancing efforts to improve educational outcomes for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. As a service to our members, CCBD considers requests to link members to surveys as per the guidelines below, both of which have been met for this study.

1. CCBD reviews requests to promote field studies which include the survey to be administered and evidence of IRB approval for the study.

2. CCBD will consider the alignment of field studies with the CCBD mission.

Therefore, the opportunity to participate in this study is made available to you by CCBD; however, endorsements should not be inferred.

If you are willing to provide your opinions to support this important work, please you use the link below to complete the 20 minute survey. The consent form and survey are included in the link.  The link will be accessible until March 24, 2017.  


Mr. Smith appreciates your consideration of supporting this research to inform practices of preparation and support of teachers of students with emotional and behavioral disorders.
