Upper Moreland School District
Upper Moreland school psychologists work with preschool and school age children, their teachers and their families in order to promote successful educational experiences. Psychological services include assessment and consultation about learning, social and behavior problems. School psychologists tailor their services to the particular needs of each child and each situation. Specialized training in human behavior, child development and education provides psychologists with the skills to ensure that each student learns in a safe, healthy and supportive environment.
In accordance with federal and state laws, school psychologists conduct formal assessments that are a component of a comprehensive evaluation when considering student eligibility for special education programming.
As part of Multidisciplinary Teams, they assist in developing program recommendations and making placement decisions. School psychologists also provide consultation to Instructional Support Teams, administrative committees, individual teachers, parents and other professionals, when needed. In addition, school psychologists serve as integral members of crisis intervention teams that respond to critical situations having a general impact on the student population.
