February is Psychology Month and we want to take the time to highlight and celebrate the contributions of psychologists at the Waterloo Region District School Board.

The WRDSB Psychology Department

At the WRDSB, psychology staff work with students, staff and parents to support learning and development, as well as helping to address mental health concerns. Each school in our system has a Psychological Services Consultant who is dedicated to providing assessment, consultation and intervention support. Psychology staff play an integral role in providing a deeper understanding of why a student may be struggling and developing strategies in collaboration with parents and teachers to support their specific learning needs.

Perhaps most importantly, psychologists at the WRDSB help students better understand their own strengths and areas of need. This empowers them to become self-advocates for their physical and mental health in school and in life, ensuring they have the tools they need to succeed.

Please join us in thanking and celebrating the psychology staff at the WRDSB for all they do every day to improve the lives of our students – each and every one.
