While we know school should be the focus of a child’s life, sometimes other events impact a student’s ability to achieve. To better support the students at Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences during such times, intervention services are available through our intervention specialist, Ms. Moreno.

- Individual and group counseling

- Transitional support for returning students
- Staff development

- Participation on various campus-based teams
Our staff includes professionals with training and experience in the areas of social work, marriage and family therapy, counseling, prevention and chemical dependency. All are licensed and/or certified in their areas of expertise. Each works closely with school personnel as an important member of each campus’ team.
Students can be referred for services by their teacher, counselor, parent, friend or self. All services are provided at no cost to the student and on their campus. Measures are taken to ensure client confidentiality. Parents are engaged in services as necessary or as requested by the student.
