Abstract: The practice of school psychology is no longer the sole province of universities and professional organizations. School psychologists are guided and controlled by statutes, regulations, case law and the Constitution. This research is a descriptive and historical study of the advent and current trend of this movement. The study was not designed to advocate or denounce the movement but to provide school psychologists with appropriate information regarding the legal aspects of school psychological proactice so that they may make better judgements in regard to their own practice. Questions are set forth in the introductory chapter of this study to guide the research. Data and information to respond to these questions were obtained from a review of federal legislation concerning school psychology and an analysis of the court cases which have involved issues in school psychology.
