It’s that time of year again. That time when camps end, pools are closed, and our kids squeeze their sun-kissed skin into new shirts and jeans, pack up their fresh school supplies into crisp, unstained (as of yet) book bags, and we as parents lament (or rejoice) the beginning of a new school year.
For some kids, the beginning of school is exciting – a time to rejoin with old friends and make new ones, and continue their progress in their own coming-of-age stories. For some kids, however, (and parents too) the start of school is an anxiety-producing event. This can be especially true when your child struggles.
Schools are set up with a system of supports designed to help those children who struggle. Among those supports is a School Psychologist. However, even with supports in place, many parents are still very much in the dark as to what they can do to access available resources. Here’s a quick run-down on one resource parents can tap into today: your friendly neighborhood School Psychologist.
