Children left behind in rural areas are an 'adjunct' to China's contemporary social transformation. This group is not only numerous but will continue to exist for a long time to come. The lack of social support is one of the major problems encountered by children left behind in rural areas of Dafang County during their growth. The researcher investigated the Y Primary School in Dafang County to explore ways of addressing the social support issues of rural children left behind in the area through a social work approach. The case study method and the interview method were adopted for this study. The researcher will interview a representative sample of three rural left-behind children who lack social support in their lives, studies, and psychology. The findings of this study offer solutions for improving the external support system for children left behind in rural areas. The researcher emphasizes the vigorous application of social work methods to mobilize multiple external social forces to help left-behind children.
