Educational Psychology in Yukon
Bradford, Charlene T.; Kroeker, Sharon D. L.
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v31 n3 p271-274 Sep 2016
Directly employed by the territorial government, Yukon's educational psychologists are moving away from "refer-test-place" services by actively clarifying a broader scope of practice within a non-categorical model of special education services. Yukon's educational psychologists provide a variety of services, such as consultation, intervention support, emergency response, and assessment, and participate in multi-disciplinary fetal alcohol spectrum disorder diagnostic assessments. Despite no registration or licensure requirement to practice psychology in Yukon, newer educational psychologists are personally initiating registration procedures and advocating for ethical and professional practice.
