As a school psychologist, how likely is it that I would not only test the students, but work with them following a diagnosis?
I want to be a school psychologist, because it involves my three biggest passions: children, learning, and psychology. I ask this question because I have heard that in some instances, school psychologists that work in school systems are only able to administer tests, but are not able to provide the student with the help they need on a one-on-one interaction. #school-psychology #psychology #child-psychology #psychology-education #learning-and-development
Very likely. I worked as a special education teacher and had the chance to work with quite a few LSSP's.
The problem they had was that there case loads were so large, sometimes spanning several schools and with so little time they could only work with the most challenging of the students. That is if the special education paperwork said they could.
So yes you will be able to work with students after testing but only a few and if it warrants it.
