School and career guidance is at the heart of student success
For clients with specific needs who may be at greater risk of failure or dropping out, guidance needs, although present, are barely expressed and require screening as part of other interventions.
For students identified as having disabilities, social maladjustments or learning difficulties, a brief identification of their interests and an exploration of trades and professions are not enough.
These students require targeted assessment and clinical intervention tailored to their needs and circumstances. The guidance counsellor is a professional who can accompany parents and their child during this delicate intervention.
