Resume the conversation with Dr. Graham Taylor and Jerry Barone of Effective School Solutions (ESS). They discuss other ESS programs including, virtual therapeutic support, crisis assessment, and re-entry solutions, mental health vision, planning the support, and their successes. Last year through February, this year, Effective School Solutions had 89% of students fully engaged in virtual services, 16% increase in GPA, absences were down 35%, disciplinary incidents were reduced by 38% and the retention of their students in the districts was around 99%. As we look toward the re-entry challenges back into the classroom for Fall 2021, our goal should be to provide our students, teachers, and parents with tools to self-regulate and as a result, many kids will be just fine.

Teleheath Services

With the pandemic nearing its one year mark, the need for telehealth services has dramatically increased over the past year. Stay-at-home orders even required some practitioners to practice across state lines.  Are you a practitioner that has been offering telehealth services? Check out the APA's article, What to know about doing telehealth in a different state.
