Vulnerable learners are unique learners.
Vulnerable learners are learners that are emotionally, socially, and/or developmentally susceptible to harm and whose existing range of options are severely limited by the barriers present in their lives.
Some of these barriers include:
- Academic deficiency
- Substance abuse
- Gang involvement
- Second language acquisition
- Lack of employability skills and training
- ABE certificate attainment challenges
These vulnerabilities and limitations impact learner success in a classroom. As learners, many many struggle with:
- comprehending academic content
- attention and self-regulation during classroom learning
- behavior management challenges
- regulating their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors
- impulsive and sometimes self destructive behaviors
- engagement, apathy, and motivation?
- diagnosed and undiagnosed learning difference or disabilities
As a result, specialized instruction and support is needed to guide these learners through their classroom and instructional experience.
