What Does It Mean To Be “Disengaged”?
When you’re dealing with a teen or young adult that is disengaged, you may notice items such as:
- No interest in school, extracurriculars, or in social aspects of the school
- Never feels included or a part of the school as a whole
- Doesn’t seem to take ownership of their schoolwork
Some risk factors can lead to a student becoming disengaged. Risk factors such as poverty or unemployment in the parents, complicated relationships at school, and physical or mental aspects can lead to behavioral issues.
