The Fred W. Hill School is committed to helping all students become effective learners, achieve personal and social goals, and develop into responsible, contributing members of society. Our Hill School Psychologist, Mrs. Belpanno, is a professional with specialized training in psychology and education. School psychologists use their training and skills to work with students, parents, teachers and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. School psychologists understand child development, school systems and effective teaching, and are prepared to help alleviate difficulties that may otherwise impede successful learning.
School psychologists tailor their services to meet the particular needs of each students and each situation. Although school psychologists utilize many different approaches and work in a variety of settings, most provide a number of core services. These services include consultation, assessment, intervention, prevention, education, research and health care provision.
