We are here to help your child achieve their best.
School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. We have specialized training in both education and mental health and know how to identify and lower barriers to learning. These barriers can include developmental or learning disabilities, behavior difficulties, teaching styles, school or classroom climate, problems at home or with friends, substance or alcohol abuse, violence, and mental health problems such as anxiety or depression.
Our goal is to collaborate with parents, school staff, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments so that all students can learn.
Counselors are responsible for scheduling as well as career, college, personal and social guidance for their students. Guidance and counseling services are available to all students at IAA. An effective guidance program utilizes counselors, teachers, parents, administrators, and other school personnel working together so that each student may grow socially, emotionally, and academically. This program affords students their best opportunity to complete curriculum successfully. The counseling program is designed to facilitate and enhance the development of each student as a total person. Attention is given to educational progress, social development, career exploration, and post-secondary placement opportunities.
Students must have a prior appointment before going to the Counseling Office, except for emergencies.
