Psychological counseling and other mental health services, including psychotherapy, may be available when your child’s emotional status has a negative effect on her educational performance and are required for the child to benefit from special education.  Other mental health services such as “residential placement” can also be provided.  [34 C.F.R. Sec. 300.104.]
