School Services

Whole HeARTs Family Center loves providing therapeutic services here at the center. However, we also know that it may be more beneficial to be able to provide support directly at school if that is where the support and skills are needed. That is why we are excited to be expanding our services to include more than just school observations. We are now offering one-one-one in school support and IEP and 504 plan support. With these expanded services Whole HeARTs hopes to provide you with more options, support, and resources to empower both you and your child to when it comes to navigating school and the school system.

imageWe have hired a fabulous Educational Behavioral Specialist, Chelsie Cohen, MA, who is passionate about supporting kids and parents within the school system. Chelsie graduated from Naropa Univeristy with her Master of the Arts in Transpersonal Counseling with an Art Therapy concentration. Even before going graduate school, Chelsie had already discovered her gifts and talents for working in the school. She spent four years working in behavioral psychology mental health services providing behavioral interventions with a range of diagnoses and advocating for the needs of her clients within a school setting.  Her experience in many different schools has help her understand how to work within the systems despite the differences. Additionally, she brings her experience of assisting families throughout the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) process, her work with skillful interacts teachers and principals, and her countless hours of behavioral observations and report writing. Because of Chelsie’s passion she continues to expand her education around this topic and has done special training in Special Education Law in Colorado.

School Observation

Having the perspective of a skilled observe and trained therapist can be a valuable tool to use to encourage and empower your child. Whole HeARTs offers in-school observations where our Educational Behavioral Specialist will come to the school and observe your child and their classroom environment. Following the school observation you will receive a report that can be utilized to help form of a 504 plan, IEP, or simply to help your child receive some extra support and attention.

One-On-One In School Support

Schools do a great job at supporting kids to learn, grow, and engage! Sometimes kids who struggle with adjusting to transitions, new rules, and new demands may need a little outside extra support. Whole HeARTs offers a specialized service to support your child and empower their teachers to continue to support your child. Our Educational Behavioral Specialist will spend time in the school one-on-one with your child developing his or her skill set and in addition empowering the teacher to continue to support your child.

IEP and 504 Plan Support

Advocating for you child may mean navigating the school system in order to request an IEP and 504 plan if your child needs a little extra support to be success at school. This process can be complicated but is important for securing services for your child. The Educational Behavioral Specialist at Whole HeARTs is here to empower you to advocate for your child throughout the whole process by helping you clearly identify requests that may be of benefit to your child. You will also have the option of having our Educational Behavioral Specialist be there during the school meeting.
