MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Our professionally licensed TCEC School Psychologists provide a wide range of school-based mental health services to assist children and adolescents in their learning and well-being. We focus on growth and development by providing supportive services to help students meet academic and emotional needs. We offer the following school based mental health services:
Consultation, assessment, intervention, education, and prevention
Comprehensive special education evaluations
Functional Behavior Assessments and support for positive behavior support plans
Social skills instruction
Individual and group counseling
MTSS and intervention consultation
Assist in the development of pre-referral activities
To determine the appropriate services for each student, our school psychologists will assess a student on cognitive feelings, social interactions, and behaviors, to determine if they are lagging in comparison to their same-age peers. After the assessment, our school psychologists will help determine if there is a need for mental health services.
INDEPENDENT EDUCATION EVALUATION (IQ ASSESSMENT)
Twin Cities Education Consultants also provides assessments for students who require an outside evaluation for qualification of educational programing (special education or gifted education programming). Assessment tools may include achievement tests, intelligence tests, behavioral checklists completed by teachers and parents, student/parent conferences, and available student work products. We work with each site to support their needs in developing an appropriate assessment to programming qualifications.
