School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.

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.

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
