School Counselors' Attitudes towards Providing Services to Students Receiving Section 504 Classroom Accommodations: Implications for School Counselor Educators
Romano, Dawn M.; Paradise, Louis V.; Green, Eric J.
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n37 2009
Questions have arisen regarding counselor's capabilities in assisting students with special needs (Milsom & Akos, 2003; Studer & Quigney, 2005). This study examined school counselors' training and attitudes toward providing services to students with learning disabilities who qualified for services only under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. The results indicated that although counselors strongly support providing services to students with special needs, those who lack educational experience reported feeling unprepared to implement specialized services. These findings suggest that school counselors would benefit from additional training when counseling students with learning disabilities. Implications for school counselor educators are provided.
