Challenge with School Attendance Webinar Series

Dear parents/guardians,


Please read the following message on the support that you can provide to your children if they have some challenges with attendance.  

Challenges with School Attendance Webinar Series

Getting to school or managing a whole day at school can be really hard for some children and teens, and it can be challenging for parents and caregivers to know how best to move forward. In this 2-part webinar series, our team of experts talk about anxiety and related challenges that can be a barrier to attending school, as well as practical strategies to help things go more smoothly. These webinars were designed to complement each other so it is recommended to watch both Part 1 and Part 2 (a or b).


Part 1: Challenges with School Attendance: Introduction for Parents and Caregivers

Part 2(a): Practical Strategies to Support Elementary School-Aged Children with School

Part 2(b): Practical Strategies to Support High School-Aged Youth with School Attendance


This webinar series was held in November 2020 and was a collaboration between BC Children’s Hospital, the Vancouver School Board, Vancouver Child and Youth Mental Health and Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre. Recordings can be viewed on the following link:
