Elementary School Counselors: Elementary school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills, and promote success for today's diverse students. Elementary students are beginning to develop decision-making, communication and life skills, as well as character values. Students are developing and acquiring attitudes towards school, self, peers, social groups, and family. (American School Counselor Association - ASCA)
