Office of School Psychology Services Newsletter: School Refusal
As the first quarter ends, most students have settled into the school
routine of friends, teachers, and classes, and look forward to learning new
things. However, for a number of youth, attending school can create high
levels of anxiety and they may begin to avoid school or refuse to attend.
This newsletter will explore what is termed “school refusal” and offer some
strategies for parents. You can find the newsletter by clicking here.
