The FCPS Office of Intervention and Prevention Services will once again be offering Parent and Student Clinics this summer to help provide greater access to school and community resources.

Parent Clinic will be available from July 2 through August 3. Parents will have an opportunity to schedule a 45 minute consultative appointment with a school psychologist or school social worker. Supportive consultation is available for parents when children are experiencing social-emotional, behavioral, or academic challenges such as anxiety, attention, poor school performance, bullying, and poor peer or family interactions. School psychologists and school social workers will be available to parents for assistance in identifying community resources, guidance on how to manage challenging behaviors, as well as how to work collaboratively with school teams around issues of academic or behavioral concerns. There will be a Keep In Touch message sent out on June 29 to alert parents of this opportunity with information on how to schedule an appointment.

Student Clinic will be offered from July 30 to August 10 across four regional high schools. High school students will have a chance to schedule a 45-minute consultative appointment with a school psychologist or school social worker to receive supportive consultation regarding strategies and tools for academic and social success for the upcoming school year. A Keep In Touch message will be distributed on July 16 to alert high school students of this opportunity and open the scheduling period.
