Job Activities of the School Psychologist in Inclusive Educational Settings.
Ronas, Andrea; Berkson, Nancy; Goh, David
A sample of 122 school psychologists on Long Island were surveyed to explore the relationship between the degree of inclusion in their schools and the amount of time they spent engaged in performing activities identified as facilitating inclusion and in completing one activity identified as a traditional assessment. The results concurred with past research showing that assessment was how school psychologists spent a large amount of their time. Although school psychologists were frequently involved in behavioral and academic consultation, they were much less involved in other activities believed to facilitate inclusion, such as modifying curriculum; conducting inservice training; assisting in planning system-wide changes; and conducting program evaluation. The degree of inclusion in a school did not show a significant effect on the type of job activities performed by the school psychologist in that school. Implications for role changes in inclusion for school psychologists are discussed. (Contains 1 appendix, 3 tables, and 13 references.) (JDM)
