School consultation is a service delivery model that increases the potential of school-based interventionists to provide services to children. This is due to consultation’s indirect nature and emphasis on training consultees. In a consultative model, a consultant (e.g. school psychologist) works with a consultee (e.g. teacher) who will deliver an intervention to a child. The chapter describes the relative advantages of such practices, such as efficiency, improved outcomes for students, enhancement in knowledge of consultees, and fostering of family-school partnerships. The chapter presents a model for behavioral consultation, with considerations that should be made in order to enhance the effectiveness of consultation. In particular, elements of sincerity, trust, communication, and partnership are described. Following, the chapter describes both traditional behavioral consultation and conjoint behavioral consultation.
