Like no other book available, Working with Students with Disabilities: A Guide for School Counselors provides comprehensive coverage of school counselors’ roles in special education and working with students with disabilities and connects that coverage to both the ASCA national model and CACREP standards. In Working with Students with Disabilities, school counselors will find thoughtful analyses of the legal and regulatory basis for many of the practices in special education, including an overview of pertinent laws including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. They’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the leadership role that school counselors should play in supporting students, teachers, and families, and they’ll also come away with an understanding of the common challenges—like bullying, cyberbullying, and successful transitioning from high school to adult life— to which students with disabilities may be more vulnerable, as well as less common challenges such as behavioral difficulties, autism spectrum disorders, and many more.

Proven practice tools and techniques for effective school consultations Consultation gives school counselors numerous advantages over individual or small group counseling. Chief among them is the far greater amount of children and adolescents one counselor can reach; by creating a more responsive school environment--consisting of teachers, parents, and others who can make decisions that children cannot--the counselor can positively affect all students who pass through that environment. However, making consultation effective requires a high level of knowledge and skill. School Counselor Consultation: Skills for Working Effectively with Parents, Teachers, and Other School Personnel represents the most comprehensive resource available for understanding the entire consultation process. Unlike other consultation books that focus on theory, School Counselor Consultation emphasizes proven practice techniques. These include: * What to say to parents and teachers about referring students to the school counselor * What to ask teachers to assist in formulating successful interventions * How to make the most of parent conferences * How to plan for, execute, and follow-up on consultation sessions * A five-step approach to conducting an individual consultation * How to plan and present psychoeducational workshops to parents and teachers This hands-on resource also features many forms and checklists--including consultation record forms, a sample agenda, surveys, and a crisis management plan--that you can use in practice. In addition, four appendices cover Adlerian theory, the American School Counselor Association and American Counseling Association Codes of Ethics, and how to best use this book to build consultation skills. Consultation offers one of the most time-effective and beneficial services a school counselor can provide. A valuable resource for both students and practicing counselors, School Counselor Consultation is the most complete and up-to-date guide to the challenging yet highly rewarding consultation process.
