180Wellbeing caters to all types of school contexts. The staff at 180Wellbeing have all had experience working within or alongside the education sector, and know what supports are relevant, appropriate and feasible within an education setting. 180Wellbeing is able to provide supports and information with teachers, a classroom setting, and the student in mind.
Our services to schools are provided under Medicare or with reduced costs to families, with minimal waiting time.
Common types of schools that need our help
We have however found that the most common school contexts that need our intervention are as follows:
1. Schools which provide education to children of low socioeconomic status
In our experience, challenging behaviours are more common in schools that cater to students who come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
2. Schools which provide education to children of mixed socioeconomic status
We have found that schools that educate children from mixed socioeconomic backgrounds report an apparent chasm between student groups due to lack of appropriate assessment and support for families that cannot afford services from traditional providers.
We help both the student and the teacher
The young people in schools that 180Wellbeing support, are dealing with daily stressors, often the consequences of trauma, and difficult life events. Starting their schooling with the disadvantages that can occur as a result of low socioeconomic status, often can lead to ongoing disengagement, increased rates of drop outs and of school refusal.
180Wellbeing offers Speech Pathology, and Occupational Therapy services to ensure school readiness, as well as ongoing support, tailored plans and skills building for students inside and outside of the classroom. These services aim to eliminate the disadvantages that children from low socioeconomic status face.
The teachers in schools that 180Wellbeing support, are often dealing with various challenging behaviours in their classes, children who require additional support due to traumatic backgrounds, and ongoing concerns about the mental health of their classrooms.
Areas in which we help
1. Psychological and counselling services
We offer psychological and counselling services to individuals and groups with a reduced wait time, which can often alleviate or eliminate challenging behaviours in classrooms that occur as a result of ongoing distress in young people.
2. Psychometric assessments
We offer psychometric assessments at significantly reduced costs and without the wait times usually expected for these reports.
3. Other training aimed at school aged young people
