Counseling

At Newmark, we believe that counseling plays an important part in developing and reinforcing the behavioral and social skills students need to be successful. Our counselors interact directly with students on a daily basis and provide the support to help students make sound behavioral and social decisions.

Counselors conduct weekly small and large group counseling sessions with a focus on:

  • Development of effective social skills
  • Learning coping skills to successfully manage emotions
  • Expanding verbal & non-verbal communication skills
  • School adjustment
  • Conflict resolution
  • Increasing self-esteem
  • Supporting and reinforcing positive behavioral choices

Newmark's point-based feedback system and behavior management protocols are observed during all counseling sessions and appropriate social skills are reinforced at all times.

Functional Living Skills
 

Being at home together creates a wonderful opportunity to teach and practice Functional Living Skills.

Children can make their beds, do laundry, help cook and practice crucial time management and organization skills as they engage in Remote Learning. This is a unique time where we can slow down and teach our families life skills that we normally might not have time to address.
