School psychologists bring a unique level of training and expertise in a variety of specialty areas that span the fields of education and psychology. This broad scope of knowledge is used to support the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral development of all students from birth to 21 years of age.
Assessment is a critically important role for school psychologists, as the data they collect is ultimately used to identify appropriate evidence-based interventions designed to address academic and/or behavioral concerns. For students who present with more significant needs, our school psychologists are actively involved in completing comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations to measure current skill levels and determine individual need and eligibility for special education services.
Through assessment, collaborative problem-solving, and data-based decision making, our school psychologists help to create safe, healthy, and equitable learning environments for all students. Above all else, our school psychologists are here to help support and advocate for students with special needs so they can grow and become successful members of society.
