Behavioral and Emotional Support Services

  • Conducting psychological and educational evaluations
  • Providing individual counseling to students
  • Providing weekly group counseling to address social and emotional coping skills
  • Designing and administering programmatic behavioral structures and supports
  • Conducting Functional Behavior Assessments as required by special education regulations
  • Developing individual behavior intervention plans for students who need that level of support

Indirect interventions include:

  • Consulting and collaborative problem-solving with each students' parents or guardians
  • Collaborating with teachers and school personnel in planning, implementing, and evaluating programs that enhance student success
  • Consultation and collaboration with other professionals, such as doctors, counselors, community agencies, advocates, and court appointed professionals to maximize the students' support system

Psychological and Educational Evaluations

Each child that receives special education services must be re-evaluated every three years to determine continued eligibility and individual learning needs. The district psychologists are skilled in the selection, interpretation, and synthesis of data from multiple sources and across multiple settings. They will assess the student's cognitive ability level and academic achievement level compared to other students in the same age or grade level. They will seek information via standardized assessments from parents, teachers, and the student regarding the student's behavior and feelings at home, in school, and in the community. Evaluation results are discussed privately with the student, parents, and necessary professionals. This information is confidential and is not released to anyone without the student's knowledge and the parent's written consent.
