Student Support Services

IDEA offers support services for students when parents, teachers or staff, or students themselves request them.

Our team of social workers and psychologists helps scholars dealing with a wide range of issues including


  • Behavioral challenges
  • Learning challenges
  • Mental illness
  • Medical crises and chronic illness
  • Homelessness
  • Pregnancy
  • Parenting 


Our student support services team includes
