    Who Are School Psychologists?

    School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school.
     
    School psychologists must be certified and/or licensed by the state. They also may be nationally certified by the National School Psychology Certification Board (NSPCB)
