Integrated Student Support Services
SERC's Integrated Student Support Services Initiative (ISSS) addresses removing barriers to student learning through professional development opportunities for support services professionals and the colleagues and families with whom they collaborate within schools and the community. ISSS focuses on the educational, communication, cultural, emotional, and health needs of students. It addresses Connecticut's achievement gaps by considering prevention, early intervention, intervention, and crisis response in support of student academic performance and healthy development. ISSS supports the interdisciplinary efforts of teams, as well as the discipline-specific needs of the professions it serves: occupational therapy, physical therapy, school counseling, school nursing, school psychology, school social work, and speech-language pathology.
