This chapter provides an overview of prevention strategies to help stave off possible future school attendance problems once they are resolved. The chapter focuses on continued practice of methods that best helped a child return to school; continued tracking of attendance, distress, and morning behavior problems; continued contact with school officials; continued meetings with a child; and continued reminders and expectations regarding school attendance. Special circumstances include leaving for work early in the morning, multiple children in a family who have difficulty attending school, children with developmental disorders, and referral to the legal system. Suggestions for what to do if the book was less helpful are also provided, and the chapter is linked to the next one on more severe school attendance problems.
