So You've Finally Got a Computer at Work! Now What? Maximize Your Consultation While Minimizing Your Paperwork.
Engel, Ned; Caci, Kelly; Currie, Amity
A school psychologist describes the experience of designing a database management system to keep daily records of services provided to students and parents. Information in the database included: dates, type of service, and time spent. A system such as this provides instant access to accountability data. How to create and maintain the database is discussed. The "Psychologist's Toolbox," designed to be similar to a web-page was created for teachers to be able to access information on their classroom computer. Various services provided by the site are described; for example, a "solution identification scale" is included, which enables teachers to design an intervention for a particular situation. Directions for creating a teacher-accessible web site are included. The toolbox provides teachers with ready access to all needed referral forms, related articles, and reference materials. Teachers can send in the forms by e-mail or print them out. Use of the networked computers enhances and streamlines the consultation process and allows for better delivery of services to both teachers and students. A page for parents is under design. (EMK)
