Needs for school psychology services to support children with school refusal and with learning disabilities were investigated. First, 903 school teachers and 1197 parents of elementary and high school students responded to the questionnaire on when they needed school psychologists' services. It was found that teachers need consultation services with psychosocial problems of children, especially when they are heavy. Parents, however, seek for services with learing, psychosocial, and career problems of any level. The results suggest that school psychologists or school counselors might introduce them to teachers on cases of heavy psychosocial problems such as school refusal and ijime, and that for parents, access to services might be the key to support them.
Second, 2872 high school students responded to the questionnaire on their problems. It was found that they have probelems in learning, psychosocial, and career domeins, and that their needs to professional services are high.
