Welcome to the Counselor's Corner! I hope to keep parents and students informed about what is going on in the Counseling Department throughout the year. Please check my page often for updates and resources that can assist you with your student. The focus of the counseling program at Avon Intermediate School West (AISW) is to provide pro-active, comprehensive services that meet the needs of all children.
Services available include:
Individual Counseling: One on one counseling services are available to children for a variety of issues. These services can be provided on a weekly or as needed basis. Referrals can come from parents, teachers, staff, or the student. Counselor/ Student confidentiality is honored at all times except in cases of possible harm to self or others and reports of abuse. Students are encouraged to discuss their feelings and concerns with their parents.
Group Counseling: Group Counseling encourages children to help each other, share ideas, respect others, and develop positive skills that will last them a lifetime. Divorce Support and Personal Growth groups are offered at AISW.
Classroom Guidance: Helping kids learn the skills they need for life!
