Students at Risk shows teachers how to deal with the different academic strengths and needs, learning styles, intelligences, interests, and cultural backgrounds of all the students in their classroom. The book argues that even though diversity in our modern classrooms can seem overwhelming, teachers can make an important difference in the lives of their students. It offers simple strategies for teaching individuals who may have exceptionalities as well as how to differentiate instruction for all students.

This comprehensive resource includes descriptions of various exceptionalities including autism spectrum disorders, foetal alcohol spectrum disorder, mental health problems, learning disabilities, behaviour problems, visual impairments, hearing impairments, giftedness, and low-incidence disabilities. Symptoms and characteristics are included to guide observations over time along with practical suggestions that can lead to impressive student achievement.

A proven process for working with individuals who are at risk of developing academic or behaviour problems but have not been formally identified is at the core of this timely book. Case studies illustrate how teachers can make simple accommodations that lead to positive student outcomes.

This expanded and updated revision is a practical guide for working with all students in the regular classroom. New material includes a thorough exploration of Differentiated Instruction, along with a step-by-step guide based on the real experience of teachers. New insights into positive relationships with parents and organizing transitions for students with exceptionalities are provided. The focus continues to be on instructional strategies that are easy to implement with accompanying reproducible pages to make it even easier.

Students at Risk will help new and experienced teachers make a difference in the academic progress and social development of all students in their classroom.
