why is elementary school counseling important?

If you were like me, there was not a counselor in the building when I was in elementary school. And still today, not every elementary school has one. But more recently, the need has become more and more apparent. The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has a great article explaining a little more in depth about the needs, duties, and overall importance of the elementary school counselor.
