How School Psychiatrists Work

Steps in our consultation process include:

  • Clarify the consultation question for an efficient use of resources
  • Gather information from administrators, teachers, parents, students, and outside providers
  • Review school records and outside evaluations
  • Direct, in-classroom observation, as well as observation in less structured settings such as the lunch room and playground
  • Synthesize input, communicate findings to relevant school officials, and family members when appropriate
