H.E.L.P. Clinic

The H.E.L.P. Clinic’s goal is to support Olathe parents and students with the education and training opportunities that will have a positive impact on the quality of a student’s educational experiences and life, and Help Each Live Productively.

The H.E.L.P. Clinic operates in cooperation with the Olathe Public Schools and outside community agencies. For many, the clinic provides a convenient, inexpensive and supportive resource for dealing with various challenging situations surrounding students or families.

  • Individual and family counseling consists of short-term counseling (six sessions) for students and their families.
  • Parenting classes are designed for parents interested in improving their parenting skills. The class uses the “Becoming a Love and Logic Parent” material developed by the Cline/Fay Institute. For parents who want to raise children who are self-confident, motivated and ready for the real world, it is designed to help parents find the right answers and actions for those difficult moments during child rearing.
  • Social skills classes serve those who need help in relating to and getting along with other students. These are structured classes in which a teaching format is used. For fourth-grade through 12th-grade students, classes are scheduled by age group and when minimum enrollments have been achieved.
  • Play therapy is a technique where the child’s natural means of expression, namely play, is used as a therapeutic method to assist him/her in coping with stress or life difficulties. Play therapy is used effectively at the H.E.L.P. Clinic with children ages 5 to 8 years old. This method allows the child to manipulate the world on a smaller scale, something that cannot be done in the child’s everyday environment. By playing with specially selected materials, and with the guidance of a person who reacts in a designated manner, the child plays out his/her feelings, bringing hidden emotions to the surface where he/she can face them and cope with them.
