What is School Psychology?

"Helping children achieve their best. In school. At home. In life."

- (National Association of School Psychologists)

The focus of school psychology is on creating environments that facilitate learning and promote mental health. School psychology seeks to help families and school staff facilitate the intellectual, academic, social/emotional and spiritual development of students.

“…School psychologists are the most highly trained mental health experts in schools. In addition to knowledge about prevention, intervention, and evaluation for a number of childhood problems, school psychologists have unique expertise regarding issues of learning and schools.”

- Sheridan, S. and Gutkin, T. (2000) in: Professional Practice Guidelines for School Psychologists in Canada, The CPA Section of Psychologists in Education, Canadian Psychological Association
