School Psychology

Reno County Education Cooperative employs six school psychologists to share the responsibilities of testing, evaluating and serving the special education students throughout the county. The educational psychology service promotes learning, attainment and the healthy emotional development of children and young people aged 0 to 19, through the application of psychology, by working with early years settings, schools (and other education providers), children and their families, other local authority officers, practitioners and other agencies. The psychologist provides support for children and young people who have learning difficulties, behavioral difficulties or emotional problems, for example, children having problems with overall development or particular areas of learning (such as reading), children with medical problems that affect their learning, children with hearing or vision impairment, children displaying temper outbursts or tantrums, children who are anxious or withdrawn, children with communication problems (speaking, listening or writing), or children at risk of exclusion.
