What is a School
psychologists works with students, families, and staff to help identify
and address learning and behavior difficulties that interfere with
school success. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other
professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning
environments for all students that strengthen connections between home
and school. This may be accomplished in a variety of ways such as:
academic and cognitive testing, counseling, classroom observation, and
direct consultation services.
Why Do Students Need School
children and youth can face problems from time to time related to
learning; social relationships; making difficult decisions; or managing
emotions such as feeling depressed, anxious, worried, or isolated.
School psychologists help students, families, educators, and members of
the community understand and resolve both long-term, chronic problems
and short-term issues that students may face. They are a highly skilled
and ready resource in the effort to ensure that all children and youth
thrive in school, at home, and in life.
