The Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) in School Psychology will educate well-rounded specialist-level graduates who will fill the increasingly varied roles of today’s school psychologist. The school psychologist is called upon to help students, teachers, administrators, and parents overcome obstacles to learning and personal development which include, but are not limited to, family disruptions, mental health problems and disabilities, inadequate exposure to instruction (i.e., medical illness, poor attendance, etc.), and academic difficulties.
The Chicago School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is an active member of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology—which has recognized The Chicago School for its distinguished service and outstanding contributions to cultural diversity and advocacy.
