The main aim of the project is to create innovative intervention model based on cognitive and narrative psychotherapies principles and elements improving students with EBLD learning motivation to prevent early school leaving (ESL). Intervention model will be created for students with EBLD of 12-19 years old studying in relevant educational institutions (e.g. secondary, VET, special or youth schools).

The direct target group of the project – students with attention problems, hyperactivity, memory problems, tension to disobey the social rules and instructions, having poor language abilities, poor social skills, aggressive, withdrawn or bizarre behavior, poor academic performance and students with mild intellectual disabilities. Special attention will be paid on socio-economically disadvantaged students. The other large group of beneficiaries will be tutors/educators, who are working with the target group of students and will use created innovative intervention model and other project outputs.

Project objectives:
• to create the instrument defining students with EBLD profile;
• to create and test innovative intervention model based on scientific research methods and cognitive and narrative psychotherapies principles and elements; make it ready to use for an international team of educators;
• to create gamified IT tool using the project intervention model enabling particularly approaches for engagement of contemporary learners and educators
