Counseling services are provided as part of the regular and special education curriculum for fourth and fifth grade students. The support may range from consultations with teachers and parents to groups, or individual sessions. Counseling interventions may cover a variety of themes, including managing emotions, developing coping skills, improving social skills, navigating peer relationships, problem solving, and much more. Students can be referred for counseling support through the Behavioral Emotional Support Team (BEST), an interdisciplinary team made up of counselors, administrators, BCBAs, who review the needs of students and make recommendations for support or interventions.
