Social Work Services
The Social Work Services department addresses a variety of emotional or behavioral issues on an as-needed or continuous basis, taking school life, home life, leisure activities and the vocational world into consideration. Services are offered throughout the elementary, middle and high school years in various individual and group settings. From behavior intervention, conflict & crisis intervention, and family & group counseling, to problem solving, psycho-social evaluation and social skills assessment, our programs are specially designed for each level and include a functional skills component for older students.
The Social Work department’s goal is to work collaboratively with the educational team to help ensure the overall social and emotional health of each student. This goal is achieved through the direct teaching of social skills, providing supportive group and individual counseling to the students, and assisting the families as they navigate through the many systems associated with raising their child. To help each student and family transition to life beyond Gengras and hopefully, along the way, we also like to have some fun!
