Offering Psychological Counseling as a Related Service is a requirement when a student demonstrates a need for this type of support. A new guidance document is being released by the Bureau of Special Education that provides information for MDE and IEP teams. This document and training follows the special education process, from the legal basis through assessment, identification of need, implementation of service and monitoring for continued need for eligible students.


Participants will:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of the legal basis and legal requirements associated with PCRS.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of the relationship between student need, determined through assessment, the IEP, and receiving appropriate services.
  3. Recognize elements of a successful community agency partnership.
