What is a School Psychologist?

The various roles of school psychologists are designed to deliver services that facilitate learning and that promote the overall academic, cognitive, social, and personal development of all students through assessment, collaboration and consultation, and intervention and prevention. 

School psychologists conduct multi-method and multi-source educational evaluation assessments as part of a multidisciplinary team, collaborate with teachers and parents to find effective solutions to learning and/or behavior difficulties, consult and participate as a member of school educational planning teams, building based problem solving teams, and staffing teams, and work directly and/or indirectly with students, teachers, and parents to help develop prevention and intervention strategies to assist students.
