Compass Health Network Pinocchio Program
Compass Health Network is requesting continuation funding to support the evidence-based Pinocchio Program within the Ferguson-Florissant school district. Primary components of the Pinocchio Program include the following: 1) systematic, early detection and screening in primary grade classes (kindergarten through third grade) to identify children with school adjustment difficulties; 2) establishing child-specific goals and objectives, providing immediate, direct, supportive services for children identified as "at risk." For children who have been assessed as having mild to moderate school adjustment concerns, these children will been seen once a week by a master's level behavioral health professional (Pinocchio Associate) for thirty minutes in individual sessions and/or forty-five minute group sessions.
