Students with Special Needs Specialist
Location: Online, Self-paced
The school setting can be a difficult place for children with special needs, as they often face challenges their peers do not. These challenges include, but are not limited to, additional transitions throughout their schooling, peer victimization, social deficits and limitations, anxiety, aggression, inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and underachievement. These students’ school experiences can be positively or negatively influenced by general school policies and the attitudes and behaviors of students and school personnel. School counselors can take the lead in assessing school climate in relation to students with special needs and initiating interventions or advocating for change when appropriate.
