This comprehensive guide takes a multi-tiered approach to addressing absenteeism and truancy. Chronic absenteeism can lead to immediate and long-term problems such as low academic achievement, delinquency, substance abuse, and family dysfunction later in life.

Absenteeism and Truancy: Interventions and Universal Procedures will help you implement schoolwide procedures to minimise absenteeism and truancy. In addition, it outlines 25 research-based interventions for use with individual students, small groups, and classes.

These interventions address common functions that motivate students to miss school:

The interventions can be used by themselves or in conjunction with Functional Behaviour Assessment of Absenteeism and Truancy. The book includes a CD with all reproducible forms needed to quickly implement a group or individual intervention.
