While school is designed as a place for children to learn and grow, many students face difficult challenges in the classroom that range from behavioral missteps to problems interacting with their peers. To help make these challenges easier on both parents and educators alike, Acenda clinicians partner with local school districts to find strategies and methods that work in the classroom and help make the learning environment a better place for everyone.
We utilize a variety of evidenced based protocols in working with your students. Our staff are trauma informed clinicians who specialize in working with school age youth. We provide both individual and group counseling, and work tirelessly to engage parents in the clinical process.
