INFORMATION
Training Overview

How do you help students who refuse to go to school? Learn how to help before the school year gets away from you.

Studies show that 10 – 15% of students fall into a category called “school avoidant,” missing an average of 10% of school days each year. It is a major challenge that more schools are facing putting students at risk of academic underachievement, social isolation, and even worse – dropping out of school. As the school year gets underway, it’s an ideal time to consider the challenges faced by students who refuse to go to school. You can apply proven tactics to help your students feel safe and embrace their educational goals before it’s too late.

Whether due to occasional bad days or chronic problems such as depression or separation anxiety, optimal strategies to foster confidence and focus in the classroom will enable you to help all students want to be there and learn. Targeted prevention and intervention techniques will diffuse challenging behaviors in students who refuse to go to school.
