PTR Networking Session

May 26, 2021

On a recent call with Dr. Iovannone, she mentioned they are frequently addressing school refusal behaviors in her clinic.  She indicated that families are seeking support because their children are refusing to engage in online instruction and struggling to make the switch back to F2F learning.  I am sure you will not find this surprising as you are likely experiencing similar concerns in your districts.

During this PTR networking call, Dr. Iovannone shared about trends in school refusal behaviors and successful PTR Family cases that supported these concerns. Participants shared about how their districts were encountering and working to address school refusal during the pandemic.
