Part I - Identification of High Risk Students

ASSESSMENT IN SPECIAL EDUCATION SERIES

Introduction

A high risk child is any child who is experiencing social, academic, emotional, medical, language, perceptual, or environmental turmoil that prevent him/her from performing up to his/her ability in school.  As a result of this intense turmoil, many symptoms are generated in a dynamic attempt to alleviate the anxiety or feelings of inadequacy. This part of the Assessment in Special Education Series looks at the symptoms exhibited by high risk children and provides a frame of reference so that these children can be identified as quickly as possible.
