Abstract: The study was carried out to establish academic performance of the emotionally and behaviorally disordered girls in mathematics. The population in this study involved teachers and girls of the ten sampled schools in the division. The main instruments employed in this study were open and closed ended questionnaires and structured interview guides. After analysis of the data, the following findings were noted; Girls with emotional and behavior problems have a special need in education and those needs ought to be addressed, to enable them remain in school and perform almost the same with others in academic work. If their needs are not met, they end up performing poorly especially in mathematics which needs more concentration. They become aggressive, have negative relationship with peers, school authority and teachers. These affect their social life and also their performance in mathematics. The causes of the emotional and behavior disorders although not very well known stretched from malnutrition of the mother during pregnancy up to the adolescent stage, cultural and traditional beliefs of the respective community, violent community into which the child is growing in, extreme poverty and feelings of hopelessness. Child’s upbringing in the family sector, lack of co-operation with other learners in the class, lack of participation in the activities around, lack of early identification and management and absenteeism from school just to mention a few
