Abstract

The goal of school social workers is to provide services and resources for handicapped students to help them achieve their maximum educational potential and an appropriate life adjustment. School social work services should be an integral part of the total professional team process in order to maximize the effectiveness of special education services and programs for children. These professionals help students and schools cope with problems that are identified within the educational environment. Through the problem solving process, they assist individuals in developing their abilities to cope with life's tasks and/or conflicts. The school social worker is also essential in helping schools develop each student's physical, social, emotional and educational potentials.
