Follow-Up on Psychological Services: State of the Art.
The paper reviews followup school psychological services with handicapped and nonhandicapped students in terms of rationale, research support, and a survey of its implementation by 121 school psychologists. Followup is defined as the continued involvement of the school psychologist following the completion of the problem identification and analysis phases with an individual child. It is explained that analysis of response patterns from the surveys indicated that 76% of the psychologists said they provide followup for all or most of the students receiving psychological services; 89% use an informal followup system, typically involving the re-contact of significant individuals within the life of the child; and that annual review staffings and 3-year reevaluations were the most frequently cited formal followup systems.
