Social Emotional Learning
The school psychologist consults with students, faculty/ staff, administration, and parents to track and support students’ educational and social-emotional needs. The school psychologist reviews psychoeducational evaluations and learning profiles and maintains a broad perspective on interventions, accommodations, and modifications for students, following them through their Howard School tenure to ensure continuity between school divisions, and suggesting new strategies as students change over time. When needed, the school psychologist works with Howard School faculty/staff to: support crisis intervention and conflict resolution; facilitate classroom interventions and small group activities; and develop and implement schoolwide assessment process and refer students to community providers for individual evaluations as needed. The school psychologist does not provide ongoing individual or family therapy, but can make referrals in the community for such services.
