Educational psychology is concerned with the processes of educational attainment among the general population and specific populations such as gifted
children and those subject to specific problem and disabilities. The terms "educational psychology" and "school psychology" are often used interchangeably, but in general, school
psychology is more concerned with the clinical applications of psychology.
Educational psychology includes a wide range of specialties within educational studies, including instructional design, educational technology, curriculum development, organizational learning, special education

An educational psychologist helps gather information for teachers and parents when students have academic or behavioral problems, and they work with students, teachers, parents, and administrators to resolve
students' learning and behavior problems. They evaluate the effectiveness of academic programs, behavior management procedures, and other services provided in school setting. They help people to accommodate
to change or to make changes in their lifestyle. They use techniques such as interviewing and testing to advise people how to deal with problems of everyday living. They assist by evaluating students' thinking
abilities and assessing individual strengths and weaknesses. Together, the parents, teachers, school psychologist, and educational psychologist formulate plans to help students learn more effectively.
Educational psychologists work mostly in elementary and secondary school classrooms. They also may work in other settings such as private practice, colleges, consulting organizations, corporations, industry,
religious institutions, and the military. A person may be considered an educational psychologist if he or she has completed a graduate degree in educational psychology or a closely related field. Psychologists
who work in a k-12 school setting are usually trained at either the masters or doctoral level.
