Role of School Psychologists & Counsellors
School psychologists assess students to identify serious learning and/or behavioural difficulties, and plan interventions. They use psycho-education assessments to develop recommendations for interventions to enhance student learning.
School counsellors work with school based teams to develop IEPs (Individual Education Plans) for students with behavioural and emotional disorders. They may administer Social Emotional Assessment in Schools and Functional Assessments of Behaviour. School counsellors also support the intellectual, human, social, and career development of students.
Psychologists employed in BC school districts have a Doctorate or Master's degree in School Psychology. Counsellors typically have a Master's degree in Counselling or Counselling Psychology. School districts may require counsellors to have teaching experience.
