School Psychology Services help students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally through collaboration with educators, parents, and other professionals. They help to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students, strengthening the connection between home and school.
School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. At a minimum, they complete a master’s degree program which emphasizes preparation in mental health, child development, school organization, learning styles and processes, behavior, motivation, and effective teaching.
School psychologists must be certified and/or licensed by the state in which they work. They may also be nationally certified by the National School Psychology Certification Board (NSPCB).
If you have any questions, or wish to discuss any concerns you may have about your student, please feel free to contact School Psychologist Arlene Saum at extension 4012.
