Who Are School Psychologists?

School Psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams who 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.

Why Do Children Need School Psychologists?

All children and youth can face problems from time to time related to learning, social relationships, making difficult decisions, and/or managing emotions such as feeling depressed, anxious, worried, or isolated. School Psychologists help students, families, educators, and members of the community understand and resolve both long-term, chronic problems and short-term issues that students may face. They are a highly skilled and ready resource in the effort to ensure that all children and youth thrive in school, at home, and in life. Source: National Association of School Psychologists
