What We Do
 

All students face challenges from time to time.  School psychologists and social workers are there to help students, parents, educators, and the community understand and solve these problems.

 

In addition, we consult with teachers and staff, assess students functioning, provide prevention and intervention strategies, and evaluate the outcome of these strategies.
