EDUCATIONAL AND SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY

Educational psychologists concentrate on how effective teaching and learning take place. They study the processes of learning, remembering, and thinking and then apply that knowledge to educational procedures, test development, and curriculum design.

School psychologists are concerned with increasing the effectiveness of schools in improving the intellectual, social and emotional development of children. They typically function in various roles within the school system. They may assist in implementing and evaluating special education programs, may serve as leaders of in-service training programs for teachers, or as consultants to teachers regarding specific teaching or classroom related problems. They may also help to treat children's psychological and educational problems that influence problems in school.
