What are School Psychology Services?
School psychology services tend to have the same amount of collaboration as school counselling services. Psychologists consult and collaborate with parents, teachers and other school teams in regards to the student’s educational status. All student have access to such services with the intent of confidentiality.
Psychologists carry-out psycho-educational assessments for students when referred as well as informal and formal assessment. According to the Ministry of education in British Columbia, (2011)“psychologists can assist school and district staff in providing in-service training for professional and teacher assistant staff (e.g. behavior management, observational techniques/data gathering), and participate or assist in program evaluation and research activities”(p.30).
