The North Fond du Lac School District is committed to promoting the health and wellness of all students and is proud to offer a continuum of emotional support to meet your child’s needs.  The North Fond du Lac School District, in partnership with local community-based agencies, will be offering mental health services beyond what is offered in a typical school setting.  These services are provided through Oriole Nation Heals Program. The services are provided will be by licensed therapists that are available during the school day.  These providers accept a variety of insurance plans, as well as other healthcare coverage programs. They will also meet the needs of children whose  families are not insured. 



What are the Oriole Nation Heals Services?

On-site mental therapy by licensed mental health therapists who specialize in working with children and adolescents.  The therapists are able to provide mental health therapy similar to what a client would receive at the clinic, onsite in the school.  


How can students access Oriole Nation Heals Services?

Families can access Oriole Nation Heals services by calling 920.929.3740 ext. 5149 or by calling their student’s guidance counselor.  School counselor and/or school staff are also able to complete a referral. If a referral is completed the Mental Health Navigator calls families to initiate school-based mental health services. Parents will be required to complete initial paperwork to allow our mental health therapists to provide mental health counseling to your child.  You will also be asked to provide insurance information, as our therapist’s do bill insurance companies for services, similar to services in the clinic. If you do not have insurance, our providers will still work with you and your families to provide services.

Mr. Edward Jedlicka

"I specialize in Biofeedback and EEG Biofeedback, commonly known as Neurofeedback, as a focal point of my practice.  I find this very effective in the treatment of ADD/ADHD, PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, learning disorders, Asperger’s, trauma, mood disorders, anxiety and depression. I enjoy working with children and adolescents to overcome issues involving attention, concentration and impulse control.  I include parents and care providers in counseling as they are key in effective change for these patients. Neurofeedback can be used alone, or may be paired with other traditional forms of therapy. Treatment should be approached from a biological, psychological and social standpoint to optimize effectiveness
