The Role of the School Psychologist
The broad role of the school psychologist includes student-centered services in mental health, family and community collaboration, comprehensive evaluations, multifaceted consultation and building-level teaming.
From the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP): 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.
