About our Organization

Positive Change

School psychologists can make a positive, lasting difference in children’s lives by unlocking each child’s potential for success.


Psychologists promote appreciation and support for human diversity, by assessing and evaluating individual differences to identify intervention strategies.


School psychologists apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.


We work with teachers, families, teachers & administrators  to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments to increase student success.
