As a member of the educational team, The Matheny School Social Worker assists students by identifying and addressing any social, emotional, and environmental issues that are interfering with their learning. The School Social Worker also works in the classrooms to help students develop their social skills through interactive group activities.

Students and their families/guardians are supported by the School Social Worker in making the adjustment to private school and interfacing with other community agencies that may be assisting the child. Our School Social Worker can also help to identify and facilitate access to local, state, and national resources related to summer camps, home supports, health care, housing, guardianship, and transition to adult programs, as well as inter-family networking and advocacy.

If families/guardians have questions and they are not sure who to turn to, the Matheny School Social Worker can assist with obtaining information and resolving problems.
