Six full-time and two part-time school psychologists currently make up the special services psychological staff. All psychologists serve as designees for the Executive Director of Special Education at staffings to determine eligibility and placement for children with suspected disabilities. Psychologists use ability tests to determine how children process information, and they also provide formal and informal evaluations of how children's emotions and behaviors might affect their school performance. Psychologists evaluate child development and adaptive behavior. They conduct behavioral assessments and assist in the development of behavior plans for children with behavior problems. They provide consultive assistance to other professional staff, parents and school administration. Widefield school psychologist's participate in group counseling with children who have been placed in many of the district's special programs, and they provide short-term individual counseling, crisis counseling and intervention when needed.
