What is a School Psychologist?
The School Psychologist may conduct behavioral, social, and academic evaluations to determine if a student is eligible for special education services. They may collaborate with other support staff (e.g., Speech Pathologist, School Social Worker, general ed teacher, Occupational Therapist, etc.) and administration to support student needs. The School Psychologist may develop behavioral intervention plans related to specific needs of students, develop pre-referral strategies to support at-risk students, and provide support and consultation to all special education programs within the school district. They may facilitate Individualized Education Planning Team meetings and provide input to parents regarding the acdemic and behavioral functioning of their student.
