Work with Children at Risk in a Modern Educational Space

Abstract.

The relevance of studying the methods of working with children at risk is extremely high, both for ordinary teachers and school psychologists. The number of children at risk is constantly growing, resulting in the need to analyse the mechanism of their upbringing within educational institutions. In addition, consideration of this issue is extremely important for society, because by choosing the right approach of the teacher to such students, there is an opportunity to re-educate them and build their respect for the norms of society and promote their personality as a law-abiding citizen. Thus, the purpose of the study is to analyse the theoretical concept of risk group, to establish its features, to investigate the criteria by which students get to them, and to consider current methodological measures for organising educational work with such children and compare them with modern educa-tional space. To achieve this goal, a set of methods was used, including both general and pedagogi-cal, namely: logical analysis, synthesis, comparative analysis, deduction, pedagogical observation, morphological method, and analysis scientific literature. The results obtained during the study can be divided into two components, namely theoretical and practical. According to the first, it is necessary to establish the essence of the concept of children at risk, to reveal its features and factors that affect it. The practical component is the analysis of current tools and approaches used in working with stu-dents at risk, including establishing their effectiveness and determining the appropriateness of their use in modern educational space and, accordingly, making recommendations for their improvement. The practical significance of the study lies in the fact that, when teachers or social psychologists use the methods developed in it, the process of changing students' attitudes and consolidating in them the values that will help them to become full members of society who will respect the rights and freedoms of other citizens and, accordingly, the social norms that have been established
