When Children Require Further Assistance

This section aims to improve teachers' ability to identify students who might benefit from further assistance and to arrange such assistance. It begins with two case example activities where participants are encouraged to practice identifying signs that might indicate student distress, identifying what additional information is required and what they as teachers might be able to do to assist the child. A main aim of this section is to assist teachers to understand how they are able to gather more information about the problem, from the child and parent and how to offer advice regarding appropriate referral options.
