Office of Student Support Services Introduces Therapy Dog Thelma
On September 13, HCPS school psychologists got to meet one of the newest members of the school system’s trauma response teams, Thelma the therapy dog and her handler, Sharon Ochs.  The Office of Student Support Services has been working with Ms. Ochs to offer her therapy dog services on a volunteer basis as needed. The initial goal is to have her involved with the ACRT training and to assist when school system suffers the loss of a student or staff member.  Thelma (and Sharon) received an enthusiastically warm reception from HCPS staff!
