Student Support Pamphlet
School Counseling aims to improve students’ emotional well-being in order to support their academic achievement. School Counselors work with students who struggle with various life experiences affecting them at home, school or in the community. School Counseling aims to support students in the following areas:
- Social Skills
- Self- Esteem
- Anger Management
- Communication Skills
- Coping Skills
- Attention and Focus Skills
- Conflict Resolution
- Problem Solving
Collaboration among students, teachers, parents and community is the key to successful intervention for students.
LCCPS provides a robust Special Education program which includes academic support in the areas of reading, writing and math as well as ancillary support in Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Physical Therapy and Counseling. We are fortunate to have on staff a licensed Psychologist, full time counseling staff, Speech and Language Pathologists, Physical Therapist and an Occupational Therapist in addition to the Special Education Teachers and Paraprofessionals.
Our goal in Special Education is for the students to have as much exposure to the general curriculum as possible. We use an inclusive/co-teaching model where two teachers (one general education and one special education) work together to support students. Additional pull-out services are provided to supplement instruction as needed.
Students are referred to the Special Education Program for testing from classroom teachers, administration, parents and through the CST process. The school will initiate interventions for the child prior to testing.
