The Department of Education employs school psychologists. The school psychologist assists children who are experiencing learning, behavioural or emotional problems. Generally, school psychologists work across a number of schools, Lathlain Primary School’s psychologist is currently at the school each Tuesday and Friday. Our current school psychologist is Ena Simic.

Children may be referred by the school psychologist through the school’s Students at Risk Team. Parents need to discuss the involvement of the psychologist with their child’s teacher.

Parent permission is necessary before any interview, observation or testing is undertaken by the school psychologist.
