To those of you who have worked directly with a school psychologist, please take a moment to thank them for all of their hard work. It doesn't have to be something large and grand (although that never hurts), but just a simple 'thank you' means a lot. And if you have never worked with the school psychologist at your child's school, take the time to find out who that person is. Get to know him or her and what he or she does. You never know when you may need to reach out.
Thanks School Psychologists for all of the hard work that you do. I highly value the work that I have done in the schools as it has greatly prepared me to understand what children truly need when they receive services from outside providers. I hope that everyone who reads this highly values that work as well.
School Psychology Awareness Week 2014 is from November 10th to November 14th.
