The purpose of this starred paper was to conduct a literature review regarding the effectiveness of Self-Regulated Strategies Development (SRSD) has on improving the persuasive writing abilities of students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (EBD). A total of ten studies published from 2009 to 2015 were reviewed. Overall, the results revealed SRSD was an effective method to increase students’ quality of persuasive writing skills. However, the current findings suggested that these improvements did not always generalize to the WJIII. Recommendations for future research and implications for current practice are discussed.
