Developmental Guidance

Our Approach:

Comprehensive developmental school counseling is designed to respond to the developmental needs of all students in a school district. The developmental approach is founded on the belief that individuals experience general stages of personal/social growth and that school guidance programs must be structured to anticipate and fulfill the academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students.

Benefits for Students:

  1. Promotes knowledge and assistance in career exploration and development.
  2. Develops decision-making skills.
  3. Increases knowledge of self and others.
  4. Broadens knowledge of our changing world.
  5. Increases opportunities for counselor-student interaction.

Benefits for Parents:

  1. Provides support for parents regarding their child’s educational development.
  2. Develops a system for a child’s long-range planning.
  3. Increases opportunities for parent/counselor interaction.
  4. Enables parents to obtain resources when needed.
