Challenges with School Attendance Part 1: Introduction for Parents & Caregivers
This special episode is Part 1 in the recording of a Kelty Centre webinar series.
Getting to school or managing a whole day at school can be really hard for some children and youth, due to anxiety or other related challenges.
Dr. Alex DiGiacomo, BC Children’s Hospital, and Alexanda Wilson, Vancouver School Board SACY Program, provide parents and caregivers with a foundation for successful school attendance and enhanced family wellbeing. The webinar covers common challenges that tend to come up when children and youth are struggling to get to school, and things you can do as a parent or caregiver to support your child and promote your own coping when things are hard.
