Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. Office of Instructional Services.; Colorado Society of School Psychologists.
This publication describes the direct service activities of the school psychologist in Colorado. The role of the psychologist is an evaluatory one. He evaluates all aspects of a child's experiences and behaviors pertinent to an understanding of the child's school difficulties. He also serves as a consultant to other school personnel concerning children whom he may not evaluate individually. He may also function as a change agent in an area such as curriculum development. The psychologist may participate in the counseling of children with special needs. Indirect service activities in which he is engaged include research and contributions to the training of new school psychologists. He also provides services to the community. A discussion of ethical standards of practice is appended. (EK)
