Psychological services are available for students experiencing learning or emotional difficulties, which interfere with their academic success. School psychologists help students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school.
School psychologists work with students individually and in groups. They also assist educators and parents about effective teaching and learning strategies, techniques to manage behavior at home and in the classroom, working with students with disabilities or with special talents, addressing abuse of drugs and other substances, and preventing and managing crises.
Individuals, teachers, counselors or administrators may initiate referrals for student evaluation. Since long-term counseling is not the role of the school counselor, outside counseling referrals may be made.
You may contact these providers at your child's respective school.
