School psychology studies how children and adults learn, the effectiveness of various educational strategies and tactics, and how schools function as organizations. Although the titles are often used interchangeably, researchers and theorists are likely to be identified as educational psychologists, while practitioners in school or school-related setting are identified as school psychologists. School psychologists work together with teachers and parents, to enhance children's learning and development by helping them to resolve behavioural, emotional and academic problems. School psychologists focus on the needs of children in school as well as other areas of children in school as well as other areas of children's lives that inte3react with their school experiences. While school psychology deals with all types of learners, some school psychologists focus on assisting children with specific difficulties such as learning disability, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and mood disorder.
