Workshop by Candace Grossjohann and Laura Hart
Building a Student Support Services Model
Student Support Services (SSS) include prevention, intervention, transition and direct services for students and families. The role of our SSS professionals is to provide direct services for all students, especially those who are experiencing problems that create barriers to positive social interactions, emotional well-being, self-regulation or learning. Direct services are provided by means such as differentiated learning opportunities, counseling, behavior intervention plans, targeted lessons, consultation and individual assessment. In addition, our SSS personnel provide in-service training, parent education, and work directly with Teacher Assistants who help manage the data around social/emotional and behavioral needs.
We believe that student support services are a vital part of comprehensive school program success and must include every member of the school community. This workshop will review the model implemented at Phorms Berlin Süd Primary School, over the past year, and highlights strengths and needs of the model.
