Creating Access: Collaborate. Advocate. Lead.
Sally A. Baas, Ed.D., President of the National Association of School Psychologists

How do we meet the diverse needs of our students, families, and communities?  We need to collaborate with purpose, advocate with expertise, and lead from our position, often from the middle of the organization…sharing strategies for success: modeling, challenging, creating vision, enabling others, and encouraging all involved. Learning Objectives:

  • Ensure participants belief that school psychology is a profession that brings positive change to students, schools and communities.
  • Provide instruction in a leadership model that works for school psychologists as they lead from the middle.
  • Help school psychologists tell stories about their effectiveness.
