Support Services: How School Psychologists can help

Listen to discussions about the field of school psychology and its influence and collaboration with special education. School psychologists have been in schools since the mid-1950s; since that time much has changed and the role of the school psychologist has blossomed into an essential support unit in school and community settings. CASP President Tom Sopp and CASP Executive Director Heidi Holmblad joined the Solutions and Strategies: Living the Challenge with Dr. Sean Surfas show’s discussion on April 27. Take a listen.
