School-Based Services

School-based services are primarily for children aged 4-18 that have significant impaired functioning in at least two domains and qualify for a DSM– diagnosis from the most current edition. A goal of school-based services is to increase the likelihood of a client completing needed educational services. Services aim to reduce suspensions and keep children in the learning environment instead of outside of class. Licensed staff provide services to clients within the school. Individual and group therapy may be conducted at school setting in order to address school functioning issues, anger, poor social skills, ADHD, depression, family issues, and other psychiatric conditions that affect school performance. Family therapy is also provided in the client’s home or office to address family, environment, and parental issues that may be contributing to problems.
