Students face enormous challenges to achieving academic success. Emotional, social, and behavioral problems can be serious impediments to learning and can have a deleterious effect not just on the individual student, but on others in the school setting. Schools, families, and communities must work collaboratively to assist students to achieve positive academic and behavioral outcomes. School social workers provide a comprehensive approach to meeting the needs of students through early identification, prevention, intervention, counseling, and support.
