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

It is unfortunate and amazing what at risk students' go through in their everyday lives.
I liked the breakdown she gave between students that were distracted, unmotivated, and anxious. I learned how intervention has to be tailored to fit these varying mindsets.
Very Informative

Thank you for the resources- parents need to connect with the teacher too to support both the teacher and the student!

I appreciate the first part of the webinar that focuses on identifying different types of at-risk students in the classroom. But the strategies suggested seem to put all the blame and responsibility of the learning process on the student instead of discussing ways to create a supportive system between the teacher and their students. In addition, this webinar makes a lot of assumptions about students and does not account for students with disabilities specifically those who may already struggle with reading and counting. While there was some things to learn in this session, I was disappointed by the end of the video.
