Psychological Services For Our Students

School psychologists receive special training in child development, learning processes, emotional and behavioral adjustment, and psychological and instructional testing. The district’s school psychologist can provide a variety of supports to students, parents, teachers, and administrators. These supports include psycho-educational testing to determine a student’s academic strengths and needs, identification of students who might be in need of special education services, assistance in the development of appropriate educational plans designed to meet students’ needs, and consultation with parents and teachers about students’ learning and adjustment.

The school psychologist works cooperatively with students, parents, community members and school staff to assist with providing all students with a free and appropriate education. School-based psychological services are provided free of charge through the Ridgway Area School District.
