• The Intervention Counseling Program is a school-based process which utilizes a systematic approach to removing barriers which interfere with learning in students. Key elements of the Intervention Counseling Program are identification, screening, intervention, and support. The Intervention Counseling Program fosters collaboration between schools and communities by referring students for assessment and subsequent treatment, when necessary. The goals of this program are to help students achieve their fullest academic potential, improve school environment, foster risk reduction, build developmental assets, and to recognize and promote resiliency.

    Referral may be initiated by students, parents, teachers, or school staff.  All referrals are confidential.
