Abstract and Keywords
The chapter reviews the historical developments in the field of school psychology over the last quarter-century, including a review of how the current status of children in the United States has influenced federal legislation and educational reform movements. The chapter also discusses indirect and direct initiatives related to improving the educational, behavioral, and mental health outcomes of children and youth. Two key developments in the field of school psychology, data-based decision making and the multi-tiered problem-solving model, have allowed the field to evolve in order to more effectively serve children, families, and schools in the twenty-first century.
