HPEC School Psychologist’s Practice

HPEC believes authentic assessment practices to be important components in school psychology services. A strong focus is placed on the collection of information that relates directly to the school curriculum, state standards, and meeting requirements set forth in “No Child Left Behind”. The development of research based interventions and a student’s response to intervention are critical components in determining the child’s needs. By focusing on these components, all children can benefit, regardless of whether or not qualifying criteria have been met.
