Behavioral/Emotional Services

PREP provides a variety of programs and services to students identified with a disability across the nine school districts in our region:  Charlottesville City, Albemarle, Culpeper, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, and Rappahannock County Public Schools.

What is Behavioral/Emotional service?

Students referred for support have behavioral needs that impede school performance.  PREP Behavior/Emotional support is consultative service designed to improve a student's behavioral performance in an educational setting in order to improve academic and social success.

How does a student qualify to receive Behavioral/Autism service?
A teacher's request of support for a student with behavioral or emotional disabilities should be directed to the school administrator or to the district special education coordinator.  The school administrator or coordinator will then arrange contact between the teacher and consultant, resulting in a visit from the consultant.   The consultant assesses the situation with the student to determine what specific interventions(s) or strategies might produce positive results depending upon the specific issue(s).

The principal, special education director or parent can also request consultative services.
