Expanding the School Psychologist's Role To Serve Regular Education Students through Child-Centered, School-Based Consultation.
Cole, James W.
This practicum developed a program to expand school psychology services for regular education students at the elementary and middle school levels in an urban public school district. The main goals were to broaden school psychology services and increase awareness of the consultant role which may be provided by the school psychologist. Specific objectives were to increase the time spent by school psychologists in support of regular education students and teachers, to gain the assistance of Resource Specialist Teachers in assessing students for special education services, to involve the school principal in the process, and to gain the support of the school district's Student Study Teams and Care Teams in making referrals to school psychologists for regular education interventions. The practicum resulted in increased regular education contact hours by school psychologists, support of principals for school psychology consultation services, and the cooperation of referral teams in requesting regular education support from school psychologists.
