Cumberland County School Psychologists will collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school and enhance the mental health and educational competence of all children.

About Us:
The Cumberland County School Psychological Services program consist of 30 full and part-time school psychologists with their Master Degree or higher in School Psychology.  The psychological services department supports the education of all students in Cumberland County Schools.  School Psychologists have specialized training in both psychology and education.  They use their training and skills to team with educators, parents, administrators, and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, health, and supportive environment.  School psychologists understand school programs, effective teaching and successful learning.  School psychologists engage in a variety of activities including, but not limited to:  psychological assessment, educational assessment, behavioral assessment/intervention, consultation/collaboration, IEP development, and intervention design.  All school psychologists additionally offer preventive strategies through Student Services Teams and individual consultation/collaboration.

The  National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) site contains helpful information for parents and teachers concerning development stages, mental health issues, and strategies for academic success.
