As the need to offer k-12 classes in virtual environments has increased, academic and behavioral challenges have often impeded access to a meaningful education. This session will provide practical strategies to address academic and social skill deficits in at-risk populations within virtual classrooms. During the session, we will discuss practical strategies to meet this population's educational needs in a manner that maintains their interests and considers various circumstances that may influence a student's ability to focus and access a meaningful education within this setting.
