Today I am sharing two forms that I use on a daily basis. The first form is a form that teachers fill out for new student referrals and the second form is the form that I send home with students after each counseling session so that their parent/gaurdian knows what they are working on in counseling.
Referral Process. Anyone can refer a student to see me for school counseling services. I get the majority of my referrals from teachers. Either way, once I have a student referred for services, I give the teacher this form: Data Collection. The teacher fills out the form and returns it to me. I then use this information to come up with goals for the student. This form usually stays between the teacher and I but there have been cases where it has been shared with parents. I usually begin seeing the student within one week of the referral date. I then begin using this form: Parent Follow-up. I use the parent follow-up form so that parents feel in-the-loop. I make a copy for myself and keep the copy in my file. This form has been a life saver. I have had great feed-back from parents.
