    What Do School Psychologists Do?
    School psychologists work to find the best solutions for each student and situation; they use different strategies to address student needs and improve school and district-wide support systems.
    School psychologists work with students individually and in groups.  They develop programs to assist teachers and parents with effective teaching and learning strategies, techniques to manage behavior at home and in the classroom and work with students with disabilities or special talents.  They also assist in preventing and managing crises.
    The school psychologist collaborates with teachers, parents, and administrators to find effective solutions to learning and behavior problems and strengthen working relationships between teachers, parents, and service providers. 
    School psychologists evaluate eligibility for special services, assess academic skills, and aptitude for learning.  They also determine social-emotional development and mental health status.
