Tiered Responses to School Refusal-Using Wraparound Interventions
Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > Professional Learning > Tiered Responses to School Refusal-Using Wraparound Interventions

​The Tiered Responses to School Refusal session will explore the types and causes of school refusal and how schools can use a Response to Intervention approach to support students who may be at-risk of, or who are school refusing. A continuum of supports for Tiers 1, 2 and 3 will be presented. The session will highlight how a wraparound approach can be used to engage teachers, allied health and families, and attendees will consider responses that can be used in their own schools.

The Department of Education and Training, in collaboration with Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE), are delivering professional learning sessions to continue to support schools who have previously undertaken training in School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS). Dr Shiralee Poad (MGSE) will present six topics in SWPBS designed to provide additional capabilities and extend programs within existing SWPBS schools. A further two topics on Functional Behaviour Assessment and School Refusal will be delivered in workshop format by Dr Lisa McKay-Brown (MGSE) and co-facilitated by Travencore School.
