Hauppauge, NY - May 15, 2018 - Paula Raniolo, William Floyd Middle School social worker, recently received a Certificate of Appreciation & Proclamation at the 34th Annual Child Abuse & Neglect/Family Violence Volunteer & Professional Recognition Day held at the Suffolk County Legislature’s William H. Rogers Legislative Building. Ms. Raniolo was selected for her efforts and knowledge in child protection and family violence. The event was sponsored by the Suffolk County Advisory Board on Child Protection.
“Growing up in a violent home has critical implications for child development and subsequent behaviors as an adult,” said Ms. Raniolo, highlighting the importance of helping children who suffer from family violence. “Children who are exposed to family violence may have difficulties with learning and have limited social skills. Some may exhibit violent, risky or delinquent behaviors, or suffer from depression or anxiety,” she added.
“Receiving this award is a testament to the district’s mission of improving and increasing access to mental health services for all of our students,” added Ms. Raniolo, who noted that William Floyd continues to make investments in mental health services. Over the past several years, the district has added social workers, psychologists, counselors and other mental health professionals.
“I am thankful for the recognition. With so many hardworking, dedicated professionals in the field it is an incredible honor to be chosen for this award,” concluded Ms. Raniolo.
