The main focus of this chapter, and indeed this book, is to consider the unique contribution of psychology as it is applied in educational settings. Are we skilled psychologists or are we psychologists with skills in some areas that are not necessarily psychological? This chapter considers the issue of 'value added' or more specifically whether utilising the services of an educational psychologist adds value to the client so that s/he is in a position to positively move forward based on that intervention. Whether or not this is indeed the case in school psychology is queried in this chapter.
