Guidance for Total Development.
Van Hoose, William H.
Elementary guidance, deriving much of its content from the developmental phenomena of middle childhood, is viewed as the maximization of human potentiality in the total range of the population. Included in the list of elementary school guidance objectives are (1) aiding academic development, (2) helping children develop health self-concepts, (3) aiding self-understanding, (4) aiding children with vocational development, (5) helping children to cope with complex inter-personal relationships, and (6) alleviating personal and emotional problems. Each of these objectives are explained. While guidance is a point of view, idea, and belief, it is also a function. Some of the key functions of elementary school guidance are: (1) child study, (2) early identification of children with special needs, (3) counseling, (4) work with other significant adults, (5) career development, and (6) coordination of school and community resources for guidance. Such functions are a must if counselors are to meet obligations to children at the elementary level. (KJ)
