One to One Student Counseling Support

Our focus is to provide best practice interventions strategies that will motivate change in the child/adolescent’s functioning and deter behavioral challenges. Our trained One to One Counselors are committed to providing academic and social/emotional support.
This include students with Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s), who engage in oppositional behaviors; defiance; poor social skills; aggression; poor interactions with adults; hyperactivity; poor impulse control; low self-esteem and depression.
Services are delivered as delineated in the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), targeting the behavioral objectives.  The One to One Counselor works collaboratively with the exceptional education teacher, providing support to the student who may be experiencing challenges in areas such as mental retardation, autism, and other health impairments.  The service is  for students who may be at risk of a more restrictive placement as well as students who may be returning to public schools from hospitalization, private day placements, or residential settings.

Who is eligible?

  • Students enrolled in a school setting
  • Students possessing emotional, social, academic, and/or self-control challenges
  • Students possessing skills development challenges (e.g., communication, coping, and peer interaction)
  • Students with IEP’s that could benefit tutoring and/or mentoring

How It Works
Students are referred by the Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT), which is usually for a school year or specified period of time.  There is a collaboration of all of the caregivers of the student including parent/guardian, teachers, administration, guardian ad litem, and any probation/parole person involved with the student.
