School Refusal

Understanding School Refusal

Resources for addressing the mental health issues behind school refusal behaviors and strategies for helping kids get back to class.

 

Struggling with a student who is melting down before school? Spending more time in the nurse’s office than the classroom? Afraid to interact with other students or teachers?

While everyone has a rough day or two, when a child falls into a pattern of habitually avoiding or refusing school, it can heighten stress levels and indicate a deeper struggle with mental health.

In four eye-opening episodes of the Understanding School Refusal podcast series, you will hear our medical experts break down the complexities of why children refuse to go to school, identify symptoms and behaviors, and share school refusal intervention strategies that educators and parents can use to work together to help kids get back to class.
