Self-Active Students

The SAS program includes:

  • Assessment to determine a student’s goals, strengths and weaknesses, and current level of performance. We collect information from the student, parents, teachers, and from school records.
  • Recommendations for:
    1. School support
    2. Home/parenting environment
    3. Potential student-initiated actions to improve academic process and self-management
  • Meeting with the student and parents to review the recommendations and to agree on a plan.
  • Meeting at the school, if possible, to put school support in place. This process includes recommending:
    1. 504 accommodations if a full assessment has been conducted.
    2. Monitoring and learning support.
    3. A follow-up plan (what information will be provided and by whom, to make sure the interventions are succeeding).
  • Meetings with the student, to choose targets and design plans for change, and to problem-solve results.
  • Meetings with parents, as needed.

Other services:

  • Depending on the student’s needs, we offer training in other skill or problem areas.
  • If we feel a brief assessment does not yield enough information to formulate an effective treatment plan, we will refer the student for a full assessment.
  • We offer or refer for additional treatment if needed for issues such as depression, anxiety, and substance use problems.
