Agree or disagree? A student with a 504 for an anxiety disorder should be required to go to some kind of counseling for coping strategies if mods are required in the classroom.

I think that as a former school counselor who was forced by an IEP to meet with students, I have to disagree. Make a referral to the counselor absolutely. However, some weeks, school counselors do not have a lot of give to have students automatically and legally scheduled. Others in crisis would not be seen because of the IEP-students who were stable because I legally HAD to see them. Everyone assumes counselors have all the time in the world because they are not doing lesson plans and can use the restroom when it’s convenient. That is not true. Until, one walks in those shoes don’t make assumptions. We all are important and busy if we work in education. Also, I have seen parents use that to make the school district pay for out of school counseling. Be very careful how the 504/IEP is worded! Just an FYI!

I would disagree, because it takes time to get into a doctor then build a relationship before they can really do coping strategies, so the mods can be a life saver until they’ve started using the strategies. I may argue that as the kid builds more coping strategies slowly tapering off the mods as they are able to cope more may be a good idea so they can see how well they can cope with increased work/decreased mods.

They already have the suggestions for modification, that's why they have the 504. It was all the things recommended while going through the MFE. When those recommendations no longer work/apply parents can request a new MFE to see if the need for an IEP is nessary and that will have goals to meet. However; a 504 can travel into the workplace whereas an IEP expires at the age of 21 and does not have to be accepted in a work setting as an adult. My son had a 504, now and IEP that will return to a 504 when he graduates next year. He can choose to use it or not, but at least I know that as parents we have put paths to success in place for him.

Ideally yes but that doesn’t take into account family finances, or other issues like abuse. They may have a family that minimizes their challenges and would never send them to therapy even if they had the money. Therapy and counseling is very expensive, I did some in college for anxiety and it was $90 an hour years ago. If you mean on campus counseling then we have the issue that our counselors are glorified schedulers and wouldn’t have time to do this part that is actually their job which is unfortunate.

Friend paid $125/hour long session two years ago for an LPC. Recently, for psychiatric visit over $400! Keep in mind, many in the mental health business have to pay rent, their own health insurance, malpractice insurance, etc. That is why I decided school counseling was financially more beneficial for me.

I'd agree, with the same caveat as High School English Teacher 1. I have PTSD from my time in the military. It does take a great deal of time to build a relationship with a counselor. I do feel that it's a worthy undertaking in conjunction with the mods. The two are not mutually exclusive. Learning coping strategies are key for anyone with an anxiety disorder, even if that is originally school based.

I’ve been told that I’m going to be teaching “in person” on Dec 2. We have been Remote since March 13th. Just the “high needs SPED and ELL”will be in class. I have 2 kids out of my 6-sub-separate developmentally delayed students and the ELL teacher will have 3 out of her 14. We will both be in separate classrooms and the adults will change-not the kids- we share one student. I was told if we are at least 8 ft apart the students can take off their masks... anyone else hear this?
