NASP is beginning a new initiative to support our members in promoting awareness of the NASP Practice Model and in advocating for your role and the profession. The NASP Push Project includes the It’s What We Do poster, a series of suggested social media posts, a ready-to-use adaptable presentation that outlines the Practice Model for stakeholders, and other adaptable resources all downloadable from the NASP website to help push out the understanding of the Practice Model.

Share "School Psychology" with potential future school psychologists!

NASP has officially launched the Exposure Project (NASP-EP) to expose high school students and undergraduates to school psychology.  As a school psychology graduate student, faculty member, or practitioner, please consider presenting to high school students or undergraduates in your area to expose them to the field.  ALL materials have been prepared for you and are available by accessing the Dropbox link below.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Dr. Charles Barrett, Co-Chair, African American Subcommittee at charles.barrett@lcps.org

Thanks for your support of this exciting project that will significantly affect the field of school psychology!
