These slides and resources are from an online session for Creative Education in January 2023 entitled ’10 Ideas to Make School Feel Safe for Children Struggling to Attend’. The session shared practical ideas to promote attendance and engagement of children struggling with school anxiety / emotionally based school avoidance (EBSA).
If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
