School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. They team with educators, parents, and other mental health professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all student that strengthen connections between home and school.
School psychologists also:
- Participate in appropriate assessment and intervention activities for selected non-disabled students (e.g., proficiency, curriculum-based, early entrance, gifted, at-risk, prevention).
- Demonstrate accountability for services with documentation that reveals improvement in student learning and behavior.
- Integrate into multifactored evaluation reports effective assessment and intervention strategies that lead to improved outcomes and meet the diverse needs of students.
