As part of the school-wide program, our individual counseling provides each student with an opportunity to work with a therapist on his/her own IEP social and emotional goals. Thirty minutes of individual counseling is provided for each student, per week, during the school year.
Meeting as a group of peers provides each student an opportunity to improve his/her interpersonal skills with both peers and adults. Feedback from both facilitator and peers helps students gain insight into areas needing improvement. Relevant topics are discussed, such as communication, relationships, social skills, grief, conflict resolution, trust, and values. Thirty minutes of group counseling is provided each week during the regular school year.
