Psychological Counseling as a Related Service will provide local education agencies with the information needed to identify students who are eligible for related services, implement the services, and monitor students' progress in response to the services. This Schoology course will build the capacity of school teams, including school-based mental health providers (school psychologists, school counselors, school social workers), to follow the special education process, from the legal basis through the identification of need, implementation of a continuum of services, and monitoring of continued needs for services for eligible students.
