Additional external services
The School Counseling Department plays an important role in helping parents find the appropriate service for their children outside of school. The school has close contacts with English-speaking psychologists, with organizations offering “Ergotherapie” (occupational therapy for children), with speech therapists as well as with the “Rechenzentrum”, which offers therapy for more severe cases of dyscalculia.
Additionally the school counseling office keeps a list of available tutors in the school community, in the event that a child needs extra assistance on a regular basis with homework. These additional services are coordinated by the counseling team, but the issues of transportation to and from, fees, and setting up of weekly appointments remain the responsibility of the parents.
