In brief: Yes
It is not unusual for a child psychologist, especially one who specializes in educational psychology, to visit a child's classroom to observe the the child, the child's interactions, and the learning environment.
The need for a visit is largely dependent upon the diagnosis or suspected diagnosis.

It has been my experience that some schools will allow outside clinicians to visit classrooms and others will not give permission. The schools that refuse, claim having an outside professional in a classroom violates the privacy of the other students. I am not sure they have a leg to stand on with that position, but it is important to check with the school administration for approval to visit.
