Barbara and Shannon provide a range of psychological services to students at Oliver Ames High School.

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.
