Needs Addressed Through the Counseling Program

Needs Addressed Through the School Counseling Program:
1.  Early intervention in personal development.
Research shows that children establish lifelong behavioral patterns during the ages of 6-10, the first four years of school.
For this reason, it is critical that counseling services be available during these early years.

2.  Helping children deal with social problems which confront them.
These problems include but are not limited to: family drug/alcohol abuse, child abuse, & the problems of a changing family.

3.  Early identification of school problems. Examples: helping to identify students who need special education services and working with high risk students such as relationships, behavior problems, transiency and work habits.
