DAS is efficient and professional. This group saves us time and helps us to provide needed services to our students. Our ARD meetings are enhanced with their participation.
I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with DAS Counseling Services. We have had the pleasure to have one consistent counselor.
Mrs. Ortega is a part of our Hobby family and we are blessed to have her. She works very well with our students. We have had students that were very resistant to counseling services.
After working with Mrs. Ortega, they have grown to love their time with the counselor and will ask that we call her to come to see them on her off weeks. We were having attendance issues with a student and the only way we could get him to come to school was by reminding him that he had a counseling session on Wednesdays.
We work with students that have some pretty serious diagnosis and it’s been my pleasure to watch them breakthrough with the help of the counseling sessions.
