CHAH is fortunate to have a full-time, on-site School Psychologist, Ms. Sylvia Amaro. Ms. Amaro helps identify and support students with special psychological and emotional needs. She provides a clinical voice in department and grade team meetings, supports parents and their children as they navigate IEP meetings with teachers, and offers counseling and therapy sessions to students who may be suffering emotionally.
Here at CHAH, we believe that the health of the individual is vitally important to the health of the community, and that their mental health is the cornerstone of our collective well-being. We are grateful that New York City and the Department of Education continue to support our mission by allowing us to provide these psychological services to our students and their families.
