In order to ensure that social and emotional learning (SEL) benefits all young people, it is important to consider how SEL initiatives affect traditionally underserved student populations and how they can be tailored to better meet the unique needs of different learners. This policy brief focuses on the status of SEL for three traditionally underserved groups:
1. Students with disabilities
2. English language learners
3. Youth involved in the juvenile justice system (justice-involved youth)
In addition to a review of the current state of research and practice in SEL for these three traditionally underserved student groups, this brief explores potential policy levers for using SEL to better prepare these student populations for success in school and life.
