School Counselors
School counselors need to care deeply about the whole child and be willing to address the academic career, and personal, social, and emotional needs of students. School counselors deliver a comprehensive developmental counseling program based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model preparing students to be college, career, and life ready by removing barriers to learning.

School Nurses
School nurses advance the well-being, academic success and life-long achievement and health of students by delivering a comprehensive school health services program.  School nurses promote student health and safety; intervene health problems to reduce barriers to learning; and collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaption, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.

School Psychologists
School psychologists provide a wide range of consultation, assessment, and intervention services to students, parents, and school staff to support high academic achievement and safe and secure learning environments. Ongoing professional development and supervision is provided, and all services are delivered in accordance with federal, state, and professional guidelines.

School Social Workers
School social workers are committed to providing advocacy on behalf of students to provide impetus for change to promote a positive school experience and healthy psychosocial development for students. Regular and intensive interventions are provided to parents and families with the ultimate goal of promoting school success for all students.

Pupil Personnel Workers (PPWs)
PPWs provide direct support to students who are experiencing academic, behavioral, emotional, physical, or social difficulties as well as their families.  They act as the liaison between the home, school, other support personnel, and the community to coordinate services and promote student success.

Physical Therapists (PTs)
The role of the PT in the schools and the Infants and Toddlers program is dynamic and diverse. In schools, the PT provides high-quality physical therapy services and works as a member of a collaborative team to enable students with disabilities to participate and benefit from educational programs. In the Infants and Toddlers program, the PT also works with a collaborative team to support the learning and development of young children with disabilities and their families within their community.

Occupational Therapists (OTs)
Working as an OT in the school system provides you the opportunity to support students' access to educational programs in a natural environment. A strong support team supports the transition to school-based practice.

Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs)
SLPs work with children in the public school setting who have significant communication problems that affect their success in classroom activities, social interaction, literacy, and learning. Communication disorders include: fluency, voice, articulation, language, and hearing impairment. Students are identified for service by a Speech Language Pathologist through the IEP team process. School-based SLP services are provided only when identified speech-language impairment directly impacts educational performance and requires the specialized expertise of a speech-language pathologist. Speech Language Pathologists collaborate with teachers and families, and consult with school personnel in order to support student communication skills in the classroom.
