Identification of High Risk Behavior - Part 1 of 3

Identification of High Risk Students - Part 1 of 3

One of the most important tools that you, as a parent, can possess is the understanding of symptoms exhibited by your children that may indicate a high risk situation. Having a child with a disability requires a great deal of understanding and knowledge. However it is crucial for you to be able to “hear” and “see” symptoms that indicate that your child is struggling in school and whose problems may be going unnoticed.  These struggles which may lead to more serious behaviors as a result of frustration can involve struggles with academic, social, emotional, and environmental issues. Keep in mind, like an infection, the faster your child is identified, the better chance he/she has in avoiding serious and long lasting problems. Therefore, it is imperative that you have a pulse on the “red flag” symptoms that high risk children exhibit. 

This issue of The Parent Conference Handouts will help your students' parents understand symptoms exhibited by their children that may indicate a high risk situation.
