FAQ’S FOR PARENTS
If concerns arise, teachers, mental health consultants and administrators work collaboratively with parents to gain input and insight into managing challenging behaviors with interventions that support the child both in the classroom and at home. When necessary, our staff partner with parents to make referrals to appropriate services, including to Early Intervention, Public Schools and Family ACCESS’s Counseling and Consultation Services.
In addition to time spent in the classroom, our clinicians are available to meet with parents and/or children to provide added support around the life events that all families face: new siblings, the death of a grandparent, a move, etc. They are also available to provide support, referrals and counseling for those times when your child’s worries, behaviors, anger or sadness cause you concern.
