SCASP Adopts the NASP Practice Model
At its December board meeting, the SCASP board officially adopted the NASP Practice Model as the recommended model for school psychological services within the state. As many of you may know, NASP adopted the Practice Model in 2010, as a unifying structure for the training and practice of school psychology. By adopting this model as our own, SCASP recognizes the importance of the national standards while acknowledging the strides that we must take in order to reach them. More information about the Practice Model can be found at this link: http://www.nasponline.org/standards/practice-model/.
