One can see the roots of School Psychology as early as 1920  when the need for services in schools began to emerge.  Psychologists such as Cattell and Binet pioneered some of  the earliest tools and methods that would be later used by  school psychologists. School Psychology basically evolved  from a community or clinic based treatment model to a  school-based and school-linked service delivery model.  Whereas the dominant ideology of earlier years was focused  more on testing for disabilities, the field has changed over the  decades to early intervention for preventing the progression  of academic and behavioral problems School Psychology: Past, Present  and Future.                  Bethesda, MD:  National Association of School Psychologists Publications.
