What is a School Psychologist?

School psychologists help children succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists work to find the best solution for each child and situation. They use many different strategies to identify and address individual student needs, and to improve classroom and school climates and support systems.

School psychologists have training in mental health and educational interventions, child development, learning, behavior, motivation, curriculum and instruction, assessment, consultation, collaboration, school law, and systems. School psychologists have taken several years of graduate level classes in both psychology and education, completed a year-long supervised internship, and has earned an Education Specialist or Doctorate degree.

School psychologists must be certified and/or licensed by the state in which they work. They also may be nationally certified by the National School Psychology Certification Board (NSPCB).

More information is available from the National Association of School Psychologists (in English and Spanish).
