School psychologists are mental health professionals who help children and adolescents overcome barriers in school, at home, and in life to enable them to be successful academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. We collaborate with school staff, parents, and other professionals to develop strategies that enhance learning environments and promote success for all students. We provide a range of services, such as conducting formal evaluation to determine a student's eligibility for special education services, recommending intervention strategies to assist in remediating the identified problems, providing assistance for students and schools when they are in crisis, and direct training to assist with the development of essential life skills.
