    Stressful family situations                      Academic performance

    Homelessness                                         Substance abuse

    Family violence                                      Social challenges

    Inappropriate behavior                           Poor attendance

    Economic deprivation                            Cultural differences


    The School Social Worker can assist through assessment of student needs, direct services to students (individual and small group), advocacy, consultation with teachers and other staff, exceptional child evaluations, crisis intervention, referrals to community agencies, and participation on school and system wide teams.
