The Comprehensive Role of the School Psychologist
Comprehensive learning supports that address the needs of the whole child must be an integral component in any education reform effort and NASP remains committed to advocating for thes supports, and the involvement of school psychologists in providing these supports. School psychologists are critical players in efforts to ensure that all students have access to the necessary academic, behavioral, social-emotional, and mental health supports they need to be successful.
Due to your incredible grassroots advocacy, current efforts to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act recognize the value of these supports, and the value of school psychologsits! As this legislation moves forward, we will need your help to make sure that policies supporting the availability of comprehensive school psychological services remain in the final bill!
