Abstract

In this systematic review I examined current literature on interventions that help at-risk children succeed in schools. To find clinical intervention studies that supported at-risk children in the school system, I used exact keywords to search for the actual intervention. Using the two databases, Social work abstracts and Clicnet, I located nine intervention studies that provided key data on intervention offered, population served, and outcomes collected. In these results I identified three main themes: yoga/mindfulness, school based mental health support, and parental engagement. Based on these themes, I also recommend further research into ways school professionals can implement different interventions within a school day to help children who struggle academically.
