The University of Washington’s School Psychology Program prepares scientist-practitioners whose practice is grounded in scientific knowledge and focused on enhancing the socio-emotional and educational competence of school age children. 

We prepare school psychologists to place children's behavioral and mental health needs at the forefront of prevention and intervention services. We believe academic and social-emotional learning are equally important in the development of children and adolescents.

Graduates of our program gain a strong background in the scientific foundations for the practice of school psychology as well as training in applying current research knowledge and theory to educational practice. Our School Psychology Clinic serves as a training site for our students while providing services free of charge to children and families in the Seattle area.
