The School Social Worker at IREC is available to enhance the development of a student's educational, social, emotional, and behavioral experiences. The School Social Worker is able to provide assistance to students on an individual basis and may also facilitate group/classroom sessions dependent on the needs in the individual schools.
At IREC, our School Social Worker facilities Rainbows, Roots of Empathy, Volcano Club (anger management support), and groups focused on the Expressive Arts. Our School Social Worker is a link to a variety of community agencies and helps to advocate effectively in support of students and their families. IREC's SSW also supports families with accessing the Food for School program at IREC that provides a daily healthy snack and lunch.
Our School Social Worker also has parenting resources on a variety of topics. If you are in need of assistance in any way you can contact Lorelei Reader, IREC School Social Worker through email email@example.com or call IREC at 403-885-4646.
