    -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.
