Challenges in School Setting That Interferes with Learning

As a school social worker, develop an assessment for an individual describing the needs and challenges in their school setting that interferes with learning.

If possible, use a current case that can include mental health or social concerns. Clearly describe the chosen school setting: urban, suburban, or rural, and whether this is an elementary, middle, or high school. Describe the student’s needs and risk and protective factors. Clarify how you will do or have done a risk assessment. What is involved? What are the barriers or challenges involved that you would need to address in providing a successful intervention? How will you work with these challenges?
