The Role of Mental Health in School Shootings [IEP 003]

IEPcontent Podcast 0

Mental health issues are serious concerns that face many students in our school systems, and the correlation between mental health issues and school shootings might surprise you. What are our schools doing to better equip themselves to deal with students who may show signs of mental health problems, especially if those problems eventually lead to school shootings? That is what we’re discussing in this episode. We’re taking a closer look at the Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza, and sharing our thoughts on what happened.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • If a child proves to be academically capable, should that affect their IEP?
  • What are some signs parents and teachers can and should look
  • What are the school’s obligations and how can we bridge that gap between the school and parents?
  • What resources are out there to help parents who are dealing with a child with mental health problems?
