ROUND HILL Wellness Team

The Round Hill Wellness Team helps provide social, emotional, and behavioral support to children, families, and teachers in the building.

What is school-based counseling?

School-based counseling services aim to help students succeed in the classroom by practicing social emotional skills like problem-solving, coping, self regulation, and mindfulness.  We use roleplays, books, play, and hands-on activities to build self-esteem, distress tolerance, and interpersonal skills- including cooperation, listening, flexibility, and kindness.  

Sources for Referral:

Parents and Caregivers, Teachers, and sometimes students themselves can refer another student to counseling services. 

Common reasons for Referral:

  • Grief & Illness
  • Changes in the family structure:
    • Divorce
    • Separation
    • New siblings
    • New family members in the household
  • Anxiety:
    • Separation anxiety
    • Social anxiety
    • Testing anxiety
  • Conflict resolution
  • School avoidance
  • Peer relations 
  • Withdrawal or other significant changes in behavior
  • Verbal or physical impulsivity
  • Personal space & boundaries
  • Social skills 

How to Refer:

Speak with the student’s teacher about your concerns and the student’s progress. The teacher will reach out to one of the school psychologists or the social worker to discuss ways to support the student. If building level counseling is appropriate, one of us will reach out to you for next steps.
