Assisting Students with Disabilities: What School Counselors Can and Must Do. Practical Skills for Counselors Series.
Baumberger, Julie P.; Harper, Ruth E.
This book describes a comprehensive assessment model called TREAT, an individually focused approach that draws information and interpretation from every available resource. Each chapter contains at least one case study to help counselors learn to apply the ideas in this book to real school situations. It discusses meeting federal regulations and guidelines regarding students with disabilities; assessing students for special education services eligibility; identifying and carrying out counseling goals for students with disabilities; working effectively with students' families; and making a real difference in the lives of students. This book is designed for school counselors who want to better understand and carry out their responsibilities to every student and for school leaders who want all students to get the counseling help that fits their needs. Includes Resource A, "Understanding and Coping with Learning Disabilities: A Support Group for Middle Schoolers with Specific Learning Disabilities," which describes techniques for conducting group sessions for male fifth and sixth graders with learning disabilities. Resource B, "Organization," provides contact information, a list of references, and a list of suggested readings. (Contains 18 additional references.) (Author/MKA)
