Research shows that students with developed social, emotional, and behavioral skills demonstrate higher levels of academic achievement. And yet many school- based interventions focus exclusively on academics or already existing mental health concerns.
The JF&CS Central MA School-Based Consultation program provides a more systemic approach to address the needs of individual students. Clinicians provide classroom observation and then work together with the teaching staff on specific concepts to benefit the student, teacher, and even the entire classrooms.
The program focuses on helping teachers (and parents) teach children the social and emotional skills they need to be more successful, both interpersonally and academically. The behavior plans are developed based on classroom observations as well as information from teachers, school counselors, administration, and parents.
