School Counseling Unit 6 Unique Issues For this discussion, you will apply your learning about counseling children with special concerns in a school setting by responding to the following scenario: A kindergartener is under the care of her physician for incontinence. Her mom checks her frequently to make sure she is dry and the girl often worries about making it to the bathroom on time. As a school counselor looking at this case, consider your approach to a first counseling session with this child: What are three developmental concerns (cognitive, socioemotional, and physical) that you would address regarding your approach with this young girl? How might you assist her with each of the three developmental concerns in a school setting? What are the special services she may qualify for through the IDEA? Describe the process for obtaining an IEP or 504.
