About School Psychology

Who are School Psychologists?

The National Association of School Psychologists describes school psychologists as uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments and strong connections between home, school, and the community.

School psychologists help schools successfully:

  • Improve academic achievement
  • Promote positive behavior and mental health
  • Support diverse learners
  • Create safe, positive school climates
  • Strengthen family-school partnerships
  • Improve school-wide assessment and accountability

For more information about the practice of school psychology, please refer to the Who Are School Psychologists information provided by the National Association of School Psychologists.
