Mental Health Counselors
Mental Health Counselors provide evidence-based treatments and interventions for children and adolescents to increase improvement of social, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive abilities for the students’ performance and success. Counselors focus on working with students and families to provide a sense of belonging and empathic understanding within the family and school environment. Mental Health Counselors seek effective therapeutic treatment modalities for individual and group counseling settings. Counselors collaborate with students and teachers to uphold short-term and long-term goals to improve academic and social-behavioral functioning. Counselors evaluate students’ behavior through personal counseling to understand their challenges and develop coping strategies to overcome their needs. We take a client-centered approach to promoting crisis intervention and treatment plans that will best support the individual student.
Every student deserves to have an equitable education. When a child has special academic, social, and behavioral needs that impact their ability to obtain regular classroom instruction, Intervention Specialists are there to support them. They work collaboratively with teachers and parents to develop and implement an effective education plan for each individual student that best meets their diverse needs. Whether in the classroom or a more personalized setting, Intervention Specialists work to create the best learning environment for their students by evaluating their areas of need and providing instruction to enhance their abilities. The Intervention Specialists at Wraparound Experts also work with the schools to develop a successful Multi-Tiered System of support programs to reach more than just special education students. This program helps to create educational equity for all students in order for them to reach their full potential.
School Social Workers are accountable for supporting and advocating on behalf of the social, emotional, and mental wellbeing of their students. At Wraparound Experts, the school social worker is responsible for evaluating and developing individualized mentoring for students to assist in emotion identification and regulation. Once we identify what may benefit the student, we offer suggestions to teachers and other support staff. Providing appropriate documentation of implemented programs and objectives, we are able to identify that students progress over the span of their services. In addition, a school social worker provides crisis intervention. If necessary, we will then direct you to outside resources to support your child’s mental health and well-being.
Occupation is at the heart of what we do. It’s in the daily tasks we complete, the important roles we fill, and the activities that give us purpose. Occupational Therapists focus on helping an individual by modifying tasks, strengthening skills, and using specific strategies to foster independence. At Wraparound Experts, the occupational therapist will perform evaluations to help pinpoint areas of function that may require a deeper look. From there, we will provide a detailed summary to answer the “why” for certain behaviors and performance deficits. With this information, we will work as a team to create a personalized and collaborative plan of care that is client-focused and supports health, participation, and overall well-being.
Speech -Language Pathologists
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) play a crucial role in schools by providing comprehensive speech and language services to students. In the school setting, an SLP works closely with students who may have communication disorders or delays including articulation disorders, language impairments, fluency disorders, and social communication challenges.
They conduct assessments to identify individual needs and develop personalized intervention plans. SLPs offer guidance and training to teachers and school staff on recognizing and supporting students with communication difficulties. They may provide resources to help educators and parents better understand speech and language development and offer tools to support that development throughout the school years.
SLPs provide direct therapy sessions, utilizing evidence-based techniques and interventions to improve communication skills. Additionally, they may offer classroom-based support, providing strategies and accommodations to support the generalization of effective communication in the classroom setting. SLPs participate in the development and implementation of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and provide ongoing progress monitoring to track students’ growth. Overall, school-based SLPs are dedicated to helping students overcome communication barriers to reach their full potential.
Board Certified Behavior Analysts
Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) focus on observable behavior. We focus on reducing behavior that impacts learning and increasing skills that help students access their environments and communicate their needs. At Wraparound Experts we conduct functional behavior assessments to assess the reason behind disruptive behaviors and focus on teaching students more functional ways of expressing themselves. We also focus on teaching school personnel different ways of instructing neurodivergent learners. This may involve modifying the environment or providing accommodations to the student. Behavior Analysts also provide hands-on supervision for classroom behavior therapists or registered behavior technicians.
Registered and Classroom Behavior Technicians
The Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) is a paraprofessional and is primarily responsible for implementing behavior-analytic services under the close, ongoing supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). RBTs are specifically trained in behavior principles and consistently execute behavior interventions accordingly.
They deliver direct instruction, collect data, and implement behavior plans developed by the BCBA. RBTs use a variety of techniques to help students improve their quality of life by reducing unwanted behavior, assisting students in developing their social skills and documenting progress. Working in the classroom setting gives RBTs the opportunity to work directly with students and implement personalized recommendations and interventions.
School-based RBTs work directly with students to implement essential behavior interventions in the school environment. To ensure students have the support they need, RBTs collaborate with other therapists, teachers, parents, and administrators. Some schools and districts use RBTs as part of a comprehensive therapeutic approach.
