With increasing emphasis, schools are
required to address a myriad of problems
presented by a diverse student body.
With the advent of increases in random
school violence and programs designed to
increase school safety, schools are much
more proactive in identifying students
at-risk. However, proper approaches
are needed to ensure the needs of the school
and the needs of a student are met.
Schools have also become more
responsive to students
with educational disability issues such as
LD, ED, OHI/TBI, or MR, who may also have
co-existing mental health issues. In
doing so, many have sought the consultative
support and expertise of Dr. Mikesell to
ensure proper diagnosis and how the school
system can more fully address the entirety of students' needs.
