Program Description

The NTDSE school psychologistís role is to help students academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally through the use of effective strategies and skills fostering a supportive learning environment for all students. School Psychologists offer a comprehensive range of services collaborating with individuals, families, schools, and communities to achieve positive and measurable outcomes for students and schools.

NTDSE School Psychologists are knowledgeable about a variety of instructional tools and assessment practices. School Psychologists use assessment data to develop and assist school personnel in the development and implementation of evidence-based instructional strategies and interventions to improve student performance.

Team Approach

NTDSE School Psychologists work with educational teams using their skills in communication, collaboration, and consultation to achieve effective delivery of services. School Psychologists use a collaborative problem solving process to assist in planning, implementing, and evaluating academic, behavioral, and mental health services. This collaborative process can span the individual, family, group, and systems level when needed.


NTDSE School Psychologists utilize standardized behavior observation tools, Excel, Power Point and AIMSweb for student data analysis. They are available to provide support to teachers in these areas.
