Joseph C. Witt, Brendan John Bartlett
ABSTRACT: This article describes four general means by which school psychologists can become involved in providing service for children’s reading problems. The four areas include: assessment,direct behavior intervention, teacher consultation, and parent consultation. The school psychologist is characterized as a “knowledge linker” who occupies a strategic position to integrate recent research into practice. Examples of assessment, intervention, and consultation strategies are presented. It is concluded that school psychologists can have an impact on children’s reading problems beyond the traditional intellectual assessment.
