Creating the Infrastructure for an Enabling (Learning Support) Component To Address Barriers to Student Learning. A Center Training Tutorial.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
To address the needs of troubled youth, schools tend to over rely on narrowly focused and time intensive interventions. Given sparse resources, this means serving a small proportion of the many students who require assistance and doing so in a limited way. The deficiencies of prevailing approaches lead to calls for comprehensiveness--both to better address the needs of those served and to serve greater numbers. This training tutorial is designed with self-directed opportunities for more in-depth learning about creating comprehensive programs that address barriers to learning. It is divided into three sessions on comprehensive and integrated approaches to addressing barriers to student learning; understanding the functions and structures needed to operationalize an enabling component; and change agents for school and community changes. The tutorial is organized topically, with readings and related activities for preparation, active learning, and follow-up. (GCP)
