What does a CLB do?

A CLB (Centrum voor Leerlingenbegeleiding), is a pupil guidance centre where parents, pupils and teachers can air their problems and ask specific questions. CLBs specialise in 4 fields: learning and studying, school careers, psychological and social functioning and preventative health care.

Every school intensively collaborates with a specific CLB, yet all CLBs are independent. Any query addressed to a CLB is treated with the utmost discretion. 

Usually, CLBs take action when a teacher, special needs counsellor or principal becomes concerned about a certain pupil. In these cases, collaboration is essential, for the child’s sake. Parents are obliged to cooperate in matters of truancy or medicals. Parents and pupils can also contact the CLB themselves.

CLB assistance is free of charge.
