The School Psychology Clinic at Cal U is a training facility for graduate students who are preparing to become school psychologists. The clinic, which is operated by the Psychology Department at California University of Pennsylvania, offers psychological testing services to the public and the University community.
A wide range of psychological services are available through the School Psychology Clinic. Assessments are frequently completed to examine the following referral issues:
- Intellectual ability.
- Learning disabilities.
- Early kindergarten admission.
- Educational and vocational planning.
- Behavioral problems.
- Social/emotional adjustment.
Evaluations typically are completed by graduate students who are finishing their training in the school psychology program. Supervision is provided by faculty members from the Psychology Department.
School Psychology Clinic Services
Services are available to anyone, regardless of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, disability, ancestry, or sexual orientation. The general public is welcome, as are all members of the University community.
For a referral, simply call the clinic or the Psychology Department office to schedule an appointment. Please be advised that the signature of a parent or guardian is required before a minor child can be evaluated.
A minimum if two appointments is required. The initial appointment includes an intake interview and the evaluation. During the second appointment, results and recommendations are shared. Additional appointments may be necessary to complete the evaluation.
An evaluation session usually requires between two and five hours. A waiting room is available, but parents may leave the clinic during their child’s evaluation session.
Reports will be released only with the permission of the client or, in the case of a minor, the permission of a parent or guardian. With permission, reports will be given only to professionals involved directly with the client.
