School personnel need to consider the possibility of maltreatment when children with disabilities exhibit problematic behaviors over an extended period of time. Identification of children who have been abused is a complex and delicate process. As noted, many of the symptoms associated with abuse can reflect other types of problems. However, ignoring the warning signs of abuse can exacerbate the psychological and physical impact of the problem. School personnel need to recognize the symptoms of abuse and understand their obligations to report them.

Adjustment disorder also applies when the reaction is expected or typical, but reaches the threshold for an adjustment disorder when that reaction begins to impair the child’s social or school functioning. For example, if a child performed poorly on a test, it would not be surprising if, afterwards, the child had some significant anxiety when it was time to take another test. If, however, that anxiety prevented the child from being able to go back to school, the child’s overly anxious response would begin to fit the criteria for adjustment disorder.
