                                    What do we do??

    School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally by collaborating with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for students.  We use consultation, research, assessment, and counseling to build environments that use both prevention and intervention in efforts that allow our students and our community to flourish. 

    School Psychologists Work With Students and Their Families to:

    • Identify and address learning and behavior problems that interfere with school success
    • Evaluate eligibility for special education services (within a multidisciplinary team)
    • Support students' social, emotional, and behavioral health
    • Teach parenting skills and enhance home–school collaboration
    • Make referrals and help coordinate community support services

    School Psychologists Work With Teachers to:

    • Identify and resolve academic barriers to learning
    • Design and implement student progress monitoring systems
    • Design and implement academic and behavioral interventions
    • Support effective individualized instruction
    • Create positive classroom environments
    • Motivate all students to engage in learning
