Impacting Student Learning Outcomes by Addressing Basic Needs of Students and Their Families

Family stressors and struggles can also impact student learning outcomes. Families struggling to provide food, shelter, health care and struggling with their own mental health and wellbeing can greatly affect the children in their care as well as the family unit as a whole (Prince & Howard, 2002; Hartline-Grafton & Dean, 2017; Cook & Jeng, 2009; Perez-Escamilla, & Pinheiro de Toledo Vianna, 2012 ).
