All students at The New LIFE School are assigned to a licensed social worker upon admission. Our team of clinicians consists of seasoned professionals with extensive experience working with students of all abilities. Our licensed school social workers engage daily with students and teachers to support the learning environment. They also collaborate closely with parents and outside service providers to create a team approach to each student’s care. The goal of all therapeutic intervention is to engage students in order to support their social emotional growth and educational experience.
The social work team provides a safe and nurturing environment through individual and/or group therapy sessions as mandated by the students individualized education plans. In addition to mandated counseling the social work department enhances the educational environment through specialized groups and therapeutic modalities.
