How We Can Help
School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams who support teachers’ ability to teach and students’ ability to learn. They use many different strategies to find the best solution for each child and situation.
School psychologists provide direct and indirect services at the student level and systems level. At the student level, they assist in developing interventions, instructional supports, and/or mental health services to develop academic, social and life skills. At the systems level, school psychologists work to implement and support school-wide practices to promote learning. School psychologists bring training and skills in data-based decision making and accountability as well as consultation and collaboration to the school and district teams on which they serve.
Day to day responsibilities of school psychologists may include conducting special education evaluations, working with students individually or in groups, delivering trainings for teachers and/or parents regarding evidence-based strategies to support student learning and social / emotional development, responding to crises, and promoting safety of all students through policies and practices that reduce bullying and harassment.
