    PreKindergarten Social Worker 

    Denise Roty, LMSW, CSSW



    Welcome to Pre-K! 

    Early childhood is such an exciting time for students and their families!  Children are welcomed into their "school family" and provided a safe space to learn and grow.  Pre-K sets the foundation for a successful academic career and a positive connection to school.  As a PreKindergarten school social worker, my role is to assist the teachers with supporting the individual needs of the students to ensure they are able to reach their fullest potential by:

    • Referring identified students to the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE)
    • Observing and interacting in the classroom setting
    • Offering suggestions for classroom management and individual student intervention
    • Providing sensory supports to promote attention and focus 
    • Collaborating with Pre-K Instructional Coaches to provide intervention, materials, and resources
    • Supporting the implementation of the Second Step social emotional curriculum
    • Collaborating with BPS partners at Say YES to provide services to families
    • Providing linkages to families for community resources
