The Center offers a full spectrum of family services to complement the school’s work with its students. Our small community of professional service providers is grounded in on-site interdisciplinary collaboration and brings together educators, , psychologists, occupational therapists, speech and language specialists, and other experienced professionals in the service of our students and their families. These professionals arrange their schedules to meet with students throughout the week and as an interdisciplinary team with other CLU staff members during weekly staff meetings.
Given the diverse needs of the children we serve, the scope of these services is not confined solely to a “school hours” and can assist with important transitions throughout a student’s day, offering targeted assistance that can begin prior to the start of school and extend to day’s end issues. This flexibility allows The Center’s professional service providers to make quick adaptations in concert with the family to maximize the benefits of a student’s program plan. Among the available options are family and one-to-one counseling, psychiatric consultation, and coordination of school and home expectations and interventions. Listening to the insights and needs of family members and coordinating timely support and direction are all crucial to success.
