What we cover in this webinar:

 Why it makes sense that your child refuses or resists going to school.

 The different areas of school life that might be triggering your child.

Identifying the problem, the ideal and what is needed to bridge the gap.

Understand how trauma could be influencing school avoidance.

 Help you to learn how to communicate with your child for more co-operation.

Help you to respond to your child’s avoidance in a compassionate and empathetic way.
