Trouble in School
Many of the youth involved with a CMO experience multiple challenges with school or daycare programs. They may even have an individualized plan, or IEP, in place from the school district to address their educational needs with their school work.
Youth may exhibit disruptive behaviors in the classroom and frequently break school rules, which can then lead to consequences like suspension or expulsion. Youth may struggle academically in which they are failing multiple classes or are behind the grade level of their same-age peers. In some situations, simply getting to school may be a major problem.
Whether it is due to a child’s level of anxiety or apparent lack of interest in attending, parents may battle with their child almost every day to get them to go to school.
How Can We Help?
The CMO helps the family navigate the system of care. Using the Wraparound Approach, our focus is to meet the needs of youth who are having trouble in school.
The Care Management Organization can:
- Collaborate with the school to develop a plan to support the youth’s success
- Attend Child-Study Team meetings with the parent/caregiver
The goal is to provide the youth and family with the needed support so the youth can be successful in their home, in their school, and in their community.
In some circumstances, just getting to school is a major concern.
