    School Psychologists provide services to schools by working with students, school staff, and parents/guardians to offer services to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally. School psychologists collaborate with educators and parents to create safe, healthy and supportive learning environments for all students. All LAUSD school psychologists are credentialed by the State of California.

    School psychologists provide a variety of services to student and families, as well as support to the staff at the schools. These include, but are not limited to:

    • Confer with teacher, school staff and parents regarding strategies for the solution or amelioration of group or individual student learning or adjustment problems and participate in prevention and intervention approaches for individual students
    • Conduct psycho-educational assessments and develop case studies of individual students to determine educational needs, learning characteristics, social-emotional needs and behavioral needs relevant to educational placement, instructional planning and services
