PRINCETON ESL COUNSELING
NYAP's Cincinnati, Ohio team's Spanish Language Services began with a contract from Princeton City School District, receiving funds to provide therapy and support services for undocumented immigrants and refugees. Princeton City Schools contracted NYAP to provide Spanish therapy and case management for children identified by the district’s schools as needing assistance.
Due to the significant need for the large population of Latino/Hispanic students in the district, this program has expanded to provide programming during the summer session of school in addition to the previous school year services.
PRINCETON ESL COUNSELING SUMMER GROUPS
We offer bilingual (Spanish/English) therapeutic services for English Language Learner (EL) students. We use a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic modality, providing opportunities to ease trauma that may have occurred with the student.
Whether born in the USA or brought from their home country, the students' parents are heavily involved in their child’s therapy with our bilingual staff and program curriculum.
SUMMER GROUP STRUCTURE:
4 unique 1-hour sessions broken up by school held in the community, focusing on social and emotional learning.
SUMMER GROUP OUTCOMES:
Children in the summer program will learn to identify and communicate their feelings and emotions, model appropriate behaviors, learn and implement several coping skills to help classroom behavior, as well as improve social skills, self-advocacy and self-esteem.
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
Bilingual Individual therapy
Bilingual Family Therapy
Psychiatric and Nursing Services
School Advocacy and Partnership
*Student’s identified during the summer groups as needing more intensive therapy or support will be offered those services through NYAP’s regular contract for school year services with the school district.
