Making the Invisible Visible: School Counselors Empowering Students with Disabilities through Self-Advocacy Training
Hatch, Trish; Shelton, T.; Monk, Gerald
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n14 2009
Professional School Counselors (PSCs) are trained to be leaders in school reform, collaborators with other educators, and advocates for all students. While PSCs provide academic, career, and personal/social interventions for the student body as part of a comprehensive school counseling program the needs of students with disabilities are often excluded. This article demonstrates replicable strategies for including students with special needs in a comprehensive school counseling program. The school counseling graduate participants focused on students with high-incidence disabilities in a diverse, urban high school in San Diego, California.
