Children

Educational Support

Parents may not be aware of the laws regarding education of children with disabilities and may feel overwhelmed. They may be having problems dealing with their child's school and wonder what to do. The counselor can help by informing the client about IDEA and FAPE requirements and helping outline possible interventions to suggest to the school. By supporting the client in her attempts to effectively parent, the counselor plays an important role in relieving stress and fostering recovery.
