Maroldo, Georgette K.
The school psychologist is being replaced by regular and special educators properly trained and concerned with assessment for instruction. To survive, he must become a Helping Psychologist--helping others in preparing children, emotionally as well as academically, for the future. Throughout, prevention rather than remediation is stressed. His tasks include: (1) teaching psychology in elementary and secondary schools, keyed to grade level; (2) modified inservice training, imparting understanding of human behavior and applications; (3) community informational services, disseminating knowledge of pertinent psychological processes throughout sociosphere of child, teacher, parent, and community; and (4) focal research and development, involving investigating of theory and technological applications to the educational process.
