Barbara and Shannon provide a range of psychological services to students at Oliver Ames High School.
Barbara works with the upper grades, helping students set goals and transition to life after high school,
whether it is vocational or educational, while Shannon works primarily with ninth graders, helping them
to transition and adjust to high school life. Both Barbara and Shannon evaluate and help to identify
special needs students, coordinate special education services and facilitate Team meetings. They
collaborate and consult with teachers, guidance counselors, parents and administrators, helping
special education students adapt to the demands of high school, identifying appropriate classroom
accommodations, and referring students to outside agencies for additional support if needed.
