  • InterviewsBenjamin Garber - Psychiatrist for a private practice Sometimes I like to use the school social worker to help my patient deal specifically with school related issues since they appreciate the school environment better than I can. Most social workers that I have had contact with will be helpful as long as they focus on what needs to be addressed.Dr. Jasmin Ashakih - Psychiatrist, Univ. of Michigan A proposed law is currently in Congress (as of 2/2011) that would call for an extension of the existing child with disabilities act (from 1975). This would enhance services so that more resources can be provided in schools before students have major problems that affect the rest of their lives.
