Educational Growth Professional counseling services could offer good assistance for children with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Psychologists well aware of ASD have shown much interest in depending on counseling tools that focus on education. This approach aims to improve educational growth in autistic children such that they better communicate with their peers and perform well on classroom tasks. For instance, apart from CBT or talk therapy, the counselor could administer Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This refers to the guidelines and principles basing on which the autistic children provide education with a special emphasis on behaviorism.
This research will include a pilot intervention program called Think Positive-Live Positive (TPLP), for young teens alongside with parental involvement, which will use cognitive behavioral techniques to teach children to identify the negative aspects of various situations and adjust successfully. The aim will be to help children modify their thoughts, focus on the positive perspectives of each event, and cope with negativity using positive and adaptable solutions. In addition, the intervention program will teach parents how to interact better with their children, and aims to make them good and understanding coaches. To measure children’s positivity, and negativity, the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) will be used ahead of the intervention and at the end to compare results. The theoretical and CBT activities that this intervention program will use are from a research based self-help book “What to Do When You Grumble Too Much - A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Negativity” by Huebner (PhD).
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based practice in the treatment of emotional and behavioral disorders for young children. This family centered treatment approach emphasizes on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns. During PCIT, therapists coach parents via one-way mirror while they interact with their child. The therapist teaches the caregiver strategies that will promote positive behaviors in children who have disruptive or externalizing behavior problems (Child Welfare Information Gateway, 1). The use of live- coaching helps the parent gain strategies in the moment, and allows the therapist to see the different dynamics of the parent-child relationship.
Topics for parent groups include child-rearing concerns, child development, and methods parents may use to help children experience healthy development and success in school (Aldridge, 1991; Friedman & Benson, 1997). The elementary school guidance counselor works with parents through individual consultation, joint consultation with the children’s teachers, and parents discussion groups. In these ways the counselor assist parents to: understand their children’s progress in school, select strategies to motivate their children, develop realistic goals with their children, become actively involved in their children’s school life, and understand the educational program K-12 (Byrd, 1988, p. 29). The counselor may lead parent education and discussion groups and serves as a resource when parents study or discuss child-related issues. The counselor consults with parents to identify students with special abilities and/or needs.

The Philosophy of Education As a school counselor, my mission is to help students learn about themselves and develop in three areas; personal/social, education, and career. I believe that every student has a gift that was given by God and my goal is to help students identify those gifts and purse those gifts to become successful students and citizens. The Purpose of Counseling The purpose of guidance counseling is to help students achieve happiness and success within their social and educational context. For young children this involves adaptation to the educational environment, and addressing any social or family problems that may interfere with the child's psychological health. For older children choice of career based on interest and ability takes precedence, although serious problems such as alcohol or drug abuse, sexual abuse or domestic violence situations, bullying and other situations that lead to severe stress are also addressed.
Kendall and Choudhury (2003, Cited in Sofronoff, Attwood and Hinton, 2005) emphasised the significance of parent involvement when using CBT with children. Mendlowitz et al. (1999, Cited in Sofronoff et al.) discovered that by implementing a therapy session which allows parents to be involved, could eventually show development to the child’s condition and an increased use of adaptive coping strategy in the child. This proposes that by permitting parents to attend therapy sessions plays a vital role, in terms of effectively treating children’s anxiety disorders.
The objective of sensory integration is to improve sensory related behavior and attention and to increase abilities for children to interact socially, academically, and function independently (Pfeiffer et al., 2011).
