WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PLANNING INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING SESSIONS

Listen to the full episode below:

Happy April! Over the past couple months I’ve shared information on classroom lessons (tier 1) and small groups (tier 2). This month we are starting a new series all about individual counseling. Individual counseling sessions are created for tier 3 students. These are the students who need additional intervention and would benefit from a one-on-one setting. They are usually students who are also receiving class lessons and small group instruction. 

Individual sessions have always been a bit intimidating to me. Even after Grad School I didn’t feel completely prepared for them. After many years of experience, I now have several tools in my toolkit that I can confidently offer to you. Today we’re diving into how you can implement individual counseling sessions in a way that will best serve your kids. These tips can be used in both in-person and virtual settings.
