ST. BONAVENTURE, NY — St. Bonaventure University will host a free workshop on March 2 dealing with military-connected students and the risk factors associated with them.
The workshop will begin with a reception at 4 p.m. in the Robert R. Jones Trustees Room of Doyle Hall on campus, followed by the presentation from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
For St. Bonaventure students, the workshop fulfills a plenary requirement.
Sponsored by the university’s Military Aligned Students Program and the Disability Awareness Committee, the workshop is open to everyone, but will be of particular interest to area teachers, school and agency counselors, faculty and students, and military families in the community.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Jeremy D. Moeller, a research and evaluation scientist at Penn State. He received his Ph.D. in special education with an emphasis on precision teaching and applied behavior analysis.
Moeller will talk about how military work-related parental absence, geographic mobility, and parental injury and death affects these students. The implementation of research-based strategies in the school setting and how school personnel can assist military-connected students will be discussed.
