Youths who did not answer four or more of the source of treatment questions with a "yes" or "no" response were excluded from this analysis. Youths who reported they received treatment/counseling from one specific source (special education services while in a regular or special classroom, a special program, or special school) were not asked for the reasons they received these services and are therefore not included in this table. See Table H.84 for a list of the 10 specific sources of treatment.
