The profession of School Psychology requires knowledge and skills in psychological and academic development of children, home-school collaboration, assessment, consultation, prevention, intervention, research, and program planning. The National Association of School Psychologists provides information regarding the professional role of school psychologists. Employment opportunities for school psychologists nationally remain positive, in public school systems, residential schools, and/or day school programs. Although the program does not guarantee employment, our experience has been that all graduates of the Gallaudet Specialist in School Psychology Program who seek professional positions find such positions within the first year. In general, one-third of program graduates are employed in public school programs that serve deaf/hard-of-hearing and hearing students, one-third of graduates work in residential schools for the deaf, and one-third of graduates serve in public school programs with hearing students.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
