Gov. Nathan Deal has proclaimed the week of Nov. 10-14 as a time to recognize the contribution of school psychology in the education of Georgia’s children.

In Coffee County, there are three school psychologists assigned to serve in the schools.  School psychologists provide  a wide variety of services, including evaluating children and assisting teachers and administrators by providing information about students’ intellectual, academic, social and emotional needs.  Additional services include counseling and crisis intervention.  Training currenly requires approximately three years of intensive graduate work and field experience in addition to meeting state certification requirements.

School psychologists perform other duties that serve school personnel and parents, as well as the students.  They are available for consultation or training and provide information about issues such as learning disabilities, behavior management, discipline, emotional problems, and test interpretation.
