Q) What does an educational psychology coach and consultant do?
A) Many people confuse educational psychology with school psychology; however, there are differences. One of the main differences is that in educational psychology the professional does not work directly with the students, but rather works with those who work directly with the students such as school administrators, teachers, and parents. In educational psychology the professional researches and analyzes academic and behavior data and observations to introduce new, or restructure, instructional methods and behavior management skills and strategies to accommodate students who are struggling academically. In school psychology the professional works directly with the students and focuses on the psychological needs of students by providing psychological evaluations and counseling services.
