Description

Children and young adults need guidance and support, especially when it comes to dealing with academic, personal, parental and social pressures. Helping people reach their potential should be your number one goal—and to achieve it you should be caring, flexible, adaptable and patient.

School counselors assist students at all levels, from elementary school to high school. They act as advocates for students’ well-being, and as valuable resources for their educational advancement. As a school counselor, you’ll first and foremost listen to students’ concerns. Because everyone’s home and social life is different, you could be the only person who fulfills that need for them at a given time. They will also complied with IEP requirements for counseling services. You may help students with issues such as bullying, disabilities, low self-esteem, poor academic performance and relationship troubles. You can refer them to a psychologist or mental health counselor for further treatment if necessary.

A counselor will also help students process heir problems and plan goals and action, as well mediate conflict between students and teachers.

They will develop a functional behavior assessment and behavior intervention plan as part of RTI processes.
