25TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

SCHOOL AVOIDANCE: WHY KIDS AVOID SCHOOL & WHAT PROVIDERS CAN DO TO HELP

Sorry… this video is no longer available.

As children enter the second academic year during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are faced with significant stressors associated with attending school. School avoidance refers to the persistent refusal to attend school or problems staying in school. Children who avoid school often experience negative developmental consequences and their families report significant distress. Often attributed to anxiety, school avoidance may also reflect underlying issues in learning and attention that may go unrecognized in interventions. Regardless of the reasons for school avoidance, effective and evidence-based intervention for school avoidance requires interdisciplinary collaboration between educators, psychologists, therapists, and medication providers. This talk will cover practical strategies for providers to work with other professionals in identifying causes of school avoidance, develop effective intervention plans targeted to children’s unique needs, and support families in navigating the systems needed to help their child succeed.

Once you have attended this session, you will be able to:

1) List at least 3 underlying causes of school avoidance, and 4 accommodations that can support school attendance; and,
2) Identify their role in an inter-professional collaboration to support families with children who avoid school
