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.
