Stratford school psychologists apply extensive psychological knowledge to the understanding of the relationship between school, teacher, and student. They provided both direct diagnostic psychoeducational intervention and indirect consultation service to educators, parents, and students. Psychological services are available for all of Stratford's students, preschool to high school, both public and non-public.
School psychologists provide individual psychoeducational evaluations of students for the purposes of diagnostic assessment, evaluating and recommending revisions in a student's school program, planning special education placement, and/or making a referral to school or community agencies for special services. The school psychologists help plan educational programs based upon identified strengths and needs of individuals and groups of students. They also assist teachers working toward the solution of management problems of students whose learning or adjustment difficulties interfere with classroom activity. School psychologists provide significant input into the decision-making process for special education services.
