SPED 432 Assignment 2 By: Nina Anderson Overview: Students at Risk for School Failure - Why is this a problem for learning? 1. Students with Disabilities 2. Students from Low Socioeconomic Backgrounds 3. Students from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds 4. Characteristics of Students at Risk for School Failure 1.

They are usually associated and often lead to rejection, low social status, difficulties making friends, loneliness, and fewer positive interactions with teachers. When a child faces some of the above struggles, they can feel defeated, misunderstood, and simply frustrated with education in general. Also, children who display a great amount of emotional and behavioral problems are usually the children that do not get a lot of positive parental support in their lives. I see this a lot in the afterschool program also. A lot of the children that show behavioral problems are the ones that are often forgot at program because it slipped their parent’s mind that they needed to be picked up, or the babysitter picks them up each day. These kids are begging for attention through inappropriate actions. There are also many children that struggle with their homework, so instead of focusing on the troubles they are having they act out to draw attention towards themselves in a different light.
