School Psychologists: Helping Educate All Children.
National Association of School Psychologists, Bethesda, MD.
Over 24,000 school psychologists work in school systems throughout the United States. Examples of what school psychologists do to help educate U.S. children, on a state by state basis, are provided in this report. The text is divided into four components: "Helping Students Learn"; "Helping Teachers Teach"; "Helping Develop Family-Responsive Schools"; and "Helping Discipline Students." Each section is organized by state and offers a short description of programs that provide effective psychological practices for children, schools, and families. The programs outline how school psychologists help with classroom behavior, and how reality-based interventions can improve both learning and behavior. Some of the specific strategies covered include anger management, peer mediation, family outreach, preschool parent groups, social skills development, early intervention, and transition help. Each program has a contact name and phone number for further information. An appendix includes data on the profession of school psychology, information about the National Association of School Psychologists, relevant publications, and position statements. (RJM)
