School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.
School psychologists collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community for all students.

Interdisciplinary collaboration is critical for educational decision-making
As a school psychologist, I collaborate and collect information from the perspective of the teacher, parent, other specialists, and the student before making critical decisions such as classifying a student with a disability and recommending special education services.
School Counseling Services
Effective school counseling services involves collaboration with teachers and parents.
Crisis intervention also involves collaboration with parents and teachers.
Response to Intervention (RTI)
Collaborative RTI Team: Guidance counselor, School Psychologist, IEP teacher, Teacher making referral, parents.
Meetings are held on a weekly basis
Teacher fills out RTI referral forms that list strengths, weaknesses and strategies already implemented in the classroom.
RTI team problem solves to develop strategies for implementation in the classroom
RTI team decides whether child’s needs can be addressed in Tier 1 classroom intervention or with Tier 2 (1:3) extra intervention or if needed Tier 3 (1:1)intervention
Teachers are provided with feedback and support if needed
