Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand policies and procedures that aid or impede bilingual school psychologists' service delivery in schools.
  2. identify and apply concepts that may help school psychologists better serve culturally and linguistically diverse students.
  3. delineate intrinsic and extrinsic factors that may influence bilingual school psychologists' provision of services.

Description

The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of policies and procedures on bilingual school psychologists’ service delivery in schools. Overall, findings showed critical areas to address that influence the role of BSPs and how they engage in service delivery. There is a clear need to assess the scope of BSP practice and how policies and procedures may hinder or support their ability to effectively serve culturally and linguistically diverse students.
