School Based Services: School Based Services are designed to help students in kindergarten through high school who are faced with emotional and/or behavioral problems that are keeping them from doing well in class. Through individual, group and family therapy, support services, and case management, the school based counselors help children and families reduce the barriers to learning and improve the emotional and behavioral development of the child.

Common problems addressed in school based sessions include: difficulty adjusting to a stressful event such as divorce or loss of a loved one; behavioral problems such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder; and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and attention deficit disorder. Ozark Guidance’s School Based program was cited as the “model” for such programs by the Arkansas Department of Education.
