The term "at-risk" has come to be widely used to describe a vast array of many different types of student school and academic problems. "At-risk" has become as broad a category as "all tall people" or "all people with blue eyes": You haven't really identified your target very precisely. Without a clearly defined image of the problem, it's very difficult to choose the most targeted, effective way to help.

This webinar explains the four types of at-risk students, then delivers the best, ready-to-use interventions to turnaround each type of at-risk youngster. Once you have a clear image of why each at-risk student is struggling in school, you can easily choose the correct, targeted, most beneficial interventions. Updated, tailored interventions will be provided for each type of at-risk student, including those who face family issues, present serious discipline problems, are unmotivated, and distracted.

You will walk away from this webinar with:

  • An insight into four types of at-risk students
  • A better understanding of what the term "at-risk" means and why at-risk students are struggling
  • Ways to identify the type of at-risk student you are dealing with
  • Targeted, beneficial interventions you can use for each type of at-risk student right away

Loved this. It was really nice for you to go through the different types of at risk students. This allows one to understand and relate better to students who are struggling at school. The interventions are set up well in the webinar and give great ideas to work with each student. I especially like the job application one and the luggage tag. Thanks for a great session!
