What Do School Psychologists Do?

Head of Psychologists

Here in Chelsea, the primary role of the School Psychologist is to use a wide variety of techniques to assess students for special education eligibility. We tailor our assessments to the particular needs of each child and each situation and may assess a number of different aspects of the child such as academic skills, learning aptitudes, personality and emotional development, social skills, learning environments and school climate, and eligibility for special education.

In addition to assessment, we also consult with staff and parents to give healthy and effective suggestions about problems in learning and behavior. We help others understand child development and how it affects learning and behavior and work to strengthen working relationships between educators, parents and community services.

We have developed this web area to serve as a guide and resource tool for staff, parents, and students. Below are resource links about many topics. We have reviewed them and feel they are informative and helpful.

PLEASE NOTE: Internet resources are great reference tools but should not be used for "Self Diagnosis." Please use these links as a starting point. If you require further assistance, please contact us in the Special Education Department . We will do our best to help and if necessary, guide families to medical/mental health professionals when appropriate.
