Counseling in the elementary schools is a service to help students make more adequate adjustments as individuals and as learners. Elementary school counselors are employed in schools throughout the United States and are often referred to as the residential experts on human behavior with particular emphasis and understanding of normal behavior (Cobb, 1984). Also, the training required to become a certified counselor provides them with the skills to work with other school personnel, parents and students in a variety of ways to initiate intervention.
