Abstract

Educators and school psychologists have long found testing and psychological reports to be limited in answering the call for effective and efficient school mental health services. Recommendations to improve school psychological services often seem so idealistic as to be unattainable or to require abandonment of established roles and functions. The present model expands the current model of the school psychological referral system in a practical and concrete manner. It presents a flow chart to guide the process of consultation after the phases of problem definition and data collection. Benefits of this model for stimulating team problem solving, continuous professional inservicing, and efficient use of time are discussed.
