Laurel Life offers a range of behavioral services within the school setting, including assessments, counseling, and behavioral interventions designed to promote a student's social, emotional, and academic success. Provided through a comprehensive network of Laurel Life staff with expertise in treating at-risk youth, these services can be easily customized to address each child's unique needs.
Laurel Life’s emphasis on prevention and early intervention means districts can begin providing intensive behavioral support as soon as the first concern is identified without having to label students with an emotional disturbance. As a result, districts can minimize the need for special education identification and personal care assistants, leading to tangible, long-term savings that can exceed $250,000 in the first year.
Laurel Life’s innovative resiliency model includes daily routines to help reduce stress and foster predictability. Instruction is designed to address all learning styles and relax the brain through the presentation of core concepts, making it more receptive and allowing learning to occur.
In addition to the full classroom model, Laurel Life offers professional development seminars, coaching, workshops and consulting on topics related to behavioral interventions and resiliency-based environments.
When it comes to student learning, a variety of factors can inhibit success, from frequent absences to behavioral concerns, to problems at home. For school districts, issues like these not only lead to poor academic performance, but they can also result in an increase in out-of school placements and higher spending.
