Meeting the Needs of Children and Families: Opportunities and Challenges for School Psychology Training Programs

pp. 565—577

Abstract: After 30 years of criticisms and concerns regarding both role limitations of school psychologists and the effectiveness of services for children with special needs, significant changes confront our field. Graduate training programs face challenges, as well as opportunities, in the fulfillment of their responsibilities to prepare school psychologists for entry into professional practice. This article examines the nature and origins of the potential changes facing school psychology and discusses the adequacy of current training programs. The future implications of this situation for training programs are discussed.
