    REASONS FOR A REFERRAL

    You have concerns with your child's attitude toward school.
    You have concerns with your child's academic growth.
    You have concerns with your child's relationships with peers at school.
    You have concerns with your child's personal development.
    You have concerns with your child's reactions to changes within the family that may be effecting his/her

Community Referrals

  • School counselors see students within a guidance setting, which is with the whole class, small group, which typically is 4-6 students,and sometimes individually.  When a school counselor meets with a student one one one it is typically short term in order to create a positive change in the school setting.  It is not intentive therapy.  If a parent is seeking therapy for his/her child a list of outside referrals is always available for a parent to use.  These therapists and agencies are not affiliated with GPISD, nor are they personally recommended.  Parents may also choose to research outside agencies on their own or many insurance companies have lists of available providers.
