Educational Success in Residential Settings: Engaging Instruction, Motivation, and Protection Under the Law
Thursday, December 1
1 - 2:30 p.m. CT
In 2018, ACRC adopted a position paper focused on best practice to fully integrate education in residential interventions. Family members and youth have advocated that high-quality education, attuned instruction, and vocational planning and training must be an equal or primary focus in residential interventions across the field. In this presentation, we’ll explore the science behind educational engagement and motivation when serving children with complex needs. Long-time educator, Dr. Helen Avis, will provide resources and techniques that can be implemented in the school and classroom along with a solid knowledge base of how the educational rights of youth are protected through U.S. federal law.
