The Roles of the Child Study Team

  • The Roles of the Child Study Team    

    The School Psychologist determines a child's intellectual and social/emotional functioning and works with students individually and in a group setting.  The School Psychologist develops programs to work with teachers and parents regarding effective teaching and learning strategies at home and in school.

    The Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (LDTC) assesses a child's academic levels, learning needs and strengths and transfers specific instructional techniques to classroom teachers through consultation and collaboration.

    The School Social Worker evaluates a child's developmental history, home environment and acts as a liaison between the home, school, community and outside service agencies.  The School Social Worker works closely with parents in providing parent advisory committee meetings.

    The Speech and Langauge Specialist screens and evaluates children in order to determine their current speech and language development.  For those children who are eligible, the Speech and Language Specialist provides services, prepares written diagnostic reports and is a resource person to parents, teachers and administrators.
