As part of the special education program provided at Martin Luther School, we work in collaboration with related service providers to enhance and help children with disabilities so they may fully benefit from their Individualized Education Plans. These services may include, but are not limited to, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy.
Martin Luther School Counseling Department
The Martin Luther School Counselors are a resource for parents/guardians and students. The School Counseling Program uses a comprehensive framework based upon the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model. Through the comprehensive school counseling program, the counselors strive to meet the academic, career, and social/emotional student needs by providing developmental, preventative, and responsive services. The school counselor functions as an integral part of the school support team and collaborates with principals, teachers, social workers, and other personnel to remove barriers that impede student learning. The school counselor is an advocate for student achievement.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to reach out to their child’s school counselor regarding issues such as social/emotional adjustment, behavior management, orientation and transition, problem solving, goal setting, career awareness, and academic achievement. The school counselor offers individual and group counseling services, provides classroom guidance, promotes bully prevention, and organizes special activities throughout the school year. Counselors are also available for confidential support in times of student crisis or family difficulty.
