About this Learning Opportunity

In this follow-up presentation to our exploration of the foundational aspects of teen delinquency, we will delve into the intricacies of implementing interventions tailored specifically to tackle school and task refusal for neurodiverse youth. This session will provide practical insights and evidence-based strategies for educators, counselors, and educational assistants by integrating interventions targeted at addressing behaviour and cultivating a positive classroom culture to effectively support teen refusals. Join us as we navigate through targeted interventions aimed at promoting attendance, addressing underlying causes, and fostering positive outcomes for adolescent well-being and academic success.
