Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom

This chapter focuses on understanding and teaching students with emotional and behavioural disorders in a Chinese classroom. It is divided into four main sections. The first section describes in broad terms the scope of special education in the area of emotional and behavioural disorder (EBD) in countries influenced by Confucianism, and the theoretical basis of EBD from an educational psychology perspective, with a specific focus on autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In the second section, classroom perspectives are described from three overlapping angles: emotional, behavioural and academic challenges. The third section addresses these areas by offering some practical strategies, including both conventionally-used methods and the progressive use of information technology. The last section then provides instructional bases for teaching a number of important key learning subjects in the Confucian-heritage classroom. With the aid of case studies, descriptions of some Chinese students who suffer from specific forms of EBD are given in order to illustrate the demands facing the teacher.

Keywords:   Emotional and behavioural disorder (EBD), Autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), Disorder, Special education, Confucianism
