Youths who answered none of the source of treatment questions with a "yes" and answered "no" four or fewer times were excluded from this analysis. Youths who reported they received treatment/counseling from one specific source (i.e., "special education services while in a regular classroom or in a special classroom, a special program, or in a special school") were not asked for the reasons they received these services and were therefore excluded from this analysis. See Table 6.50 for a list of the 10 specific sources of treatment.
