School Psychologists

  • School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.
    School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

    • Collaborate with school leaders to develop and improve programs that support positive school climate and delivery of general education and special education interventions,
    • Support parents who want to learn how to help their child who is struggling academically or emotionally.
