    Hello! My name is Olivia Brimmer, and I am the School Social Worker here at AMS. School Social Workers are the link between home, school, and community. As a member of both mainstream and special educational teams, a school social worker supports and promote student's social and academic success by providing services which include:

    -Individual and group counseling
    -Crisis prevention and intervention
    -Support for students and parents
    -Collaboration with community agencies and organizations
    -Collaboration with other student services professionals
    -Advocacy for students, parents, and the school system
    -Special education pre-referral, assessments, and services as defined on the IEP
    -Teaming with the school counselor to form and facilitate groups on topics such as: social skills, family change, grief, abuse, understanding disability and self-advocacy, mental health, and chemical and drug abuse.
    -Assist students in developing non-academic skills such as interpersonal skills, positive self-image, and healthy boundaries.

    HERE is a link to an article on adolescent development that you may find helpful when trying to figure out why your child acts as they do in this period of their life.

    Please feel free to reach out with any concerns or questions! I am happy to help in any way I can. 

    I am excited for a great year at AMS!
