School avoidance and attendance problems present school systems and parents with particularly difficult challenges. The reasons why students are unable, or unwilling, to attend school routinely are varied, often requiring a variety of different assessments and intervention approaches. Although the goal is usually the same - to help students reintegrate back into their public school communities and progress academically, socially, and emotionally – the roads which lead to that goal may be quite different.
The presenter, Joe Pedemonti from the Institute of Living's Webb School, will focus on attendance issues in schools and ways to support school-avoidance students. Attendees will leave with ten tips to help school personnel with attendance issues.
Registration for this seminar is open to those from CAS member schools.
