School Psychology: Consultation, Collaboration And Intervention

The course is designed to help students become familiar with alternative frameworks for educational delivery systems including emerging skills in instructional and collaborative consultation, teaming strategies, curriculum based assessment and measurement, and intervention strategies in the academic, behavior and social areas. Emphasis is placed in viewing the problems children experience in schools from a systems or ecological perspective as opposed to residing within the child. The role of the school psychologist will be enlarged to permit their effective participation in transdisciplinary school based terms.
