We provide a range of services for the benefit of students and families. These consist of direct and indirect services that involve the entire educational system, including the students, families, teachers, counselors, administrators, other school personnel, community agencies, and a variety of others. The primary intent of school psychological services is to promote mental and physical wellness and facilitate learning of students. School Psychologists collaborate with administrators and other school personnel in designing and providing services to address the academic,career, and social/personal development of students. The core services of the school psychologist include:individual psychological counseling with students; group counseling/skill development; consultation with parents, school staff, and community agencies; participation on the Student Support Team which helps develop interventions for at-risk students; psychological/educational assessment; serving on the special education Case Study Committee and providing IEP services when needed; providing training activities to school staff and parents; and assisting with program development, research, and evaluation.
As a result of the partnership between DODEA Bavaria - District and the Bavaria Medical Command, Grafenwoehr Elementary School is one of the several schools in the Bavaria District that houses a mental health provider from the local Behavioral health clinic. This professional is able to provide mental health counseling / therapy to children and families normally provided at the local behavioral health clinic, on site at the school. This allows for children and families to receive services without the child having to leave school. Please contact your local behavioral health clinic or school administrator for more information regarding how to access these services.
