School psychologists at Cumberland Valley School District have two main job functions.  First, we consult with parents and teachers about a student's educational progress through the Child Staffing/Study Team and Student Assistance Team models.  Second, we assess students to determine if they a) have disabilities and are in need of special education, b) have disabilities and are in need of a 504 plan, and c) are mentally gifted and in need of gifted support services.  School psychologists also provide short-term direct intervention to students in crisis situations. 


If you have a concern about your child's educational progress, please contact your child's teacher and/or school counselor.  A Child Study Team meeting may be held, which may include you, your child's teacher(s), the school counselor, the school psychologist, the principal, and any other educational professionals that work with your child.  Information concerning your child's development, behavior, and socialization at home; academic progress at school; behavior and socialization at school; and the results of academic or behavioral screenings may be discussed.  The Child Study Team will brainstorm ways in which you and the school personnel can support your child's progress and decide whether to refer your child for more in-depth evaluation if a disability is suspected.
