Prince Edward Island's School Psychology Report
Matters, Rhonda
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v31 n3 p256-258 Sep 2016
The Prince Edward Island (PEI) school system has been struggling with issues of recruitment and particularly retention for psychologists. Reasons include concerns about professional autonomy; having more limited roles, which are heavily assessment focused; reduced job satisfaction; and restrictions on additional private practice work. The waiting list for a psychological assessment in the school system is currently more than 3 years. A number of years ago, psychoeducational consults were added to the referral process. During a brief meeting, a decision is made about the waiting list, but additional recommendations are also provided so that further assessments can occur and other interventions are initiated.
