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.
