Keeping the solution at school...

Laurel Life Services include a range of treatment services available in a school setting. These services are provided through a network of Laurel Life school-based therapists and designed to address issues that have affected a student's social, emotional, and academic success in school. Services include assessment, development of a treatment plan, and counseling interventions designed to meet each child's needs.
