Lee's Summit R-7 School District

School Social Work Services

The LSR-7 Educational Therapist (SCL) is responsible for assisting families and schools for better success.  This can be done by linking students and families with resources, and coordinating services in the community and eliminating possible barriers to the learning process. Strong collaboration with administrators, counselors, school social workers, therapists in the district, and community organizations is critical. Each Educational Therapist will serve a high school feeder system. This organizational alignment assists the Educational Therapist
in working with families with multiple children at different school levels.

If you would like to receive more information about how a Educational Therapist may be able to help you or your family, please feel free to complete our
School Social Work Services Form or print off our
downloadable form and turn it into your student’s counselor.  Once it is received, a Educational Therapist
will contact you.
