What do school psychologists do?

School psychologists identify, diagnose, and treat students of all ages with learning disabilities, mental health disorders, and cognitive, emotional, social, and behavioral problems. As mental health professionals who understand the link between mental health and learning, they develop plans to address specific issues and, if necessary, refer students to special services or other mental health resources. Other duties may include:

  • Engaging in school-wide mental health activities

  • Engaging in crisis prevention and intervention

  • Providing individual counseling and support groups

  • Assisting educators in implementing safe classrooms and schools

  • Consulting with teachers, administrators, parents, and community mental health providers

  • Serving students with disabilities through special education assessments and placement

Where do school psychologists work?

The majority of school psychologists (81%) work in public school settings, according to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). They also may work in private schools, colleges and universities, day care centers, community agencies, juvenile detention facilities, hospitals, clinics, research centers, and private practices. 

What skills make a good school psychologist?

School psychologists must have an in-depth understanding of child and adolescent psychology. They also need advanced knowledge of common learning disabilities, broad and acute spectrum disorders, and behavioral disorders. Other desirable skills include:

  • Team building and de-escalation techniques

  • Complex decision making

  • Data analysis and evaluation

  • Sensitivity to privacy concerns

  • Understanding of legal and compliance rules in a school setting

How to become a travel school psychologist?

Aspiring travel school psychologists must earn a bachelor's degree and then complete a graduate degree in school psychology in a program accredited by NASP's Program Accreditation Board, the American Psychological Association or another approved accrediting organization. Most graduate programs require supervised fieldwork and an internship in addition to academic coursework. Some work environments and/or positions may require a doctorate.

School psychologists must obtain a license, with licensing requirements varying by state. Most states require completion of a specialist-level program in school psychology with 60 graduate semester credits and 1,200 internship hours, plus passing the Praxis II school psychology exam. Additionally, national certification is offered through the National Association of School Psychologists
