Getting the most out of Virtual Fieldwork Experiences

This webinar is not eligible for CEUs.
Covid has drastically altered clinical practice, commonly referred to as fieldwork, for school psychology training. Historically, it is during this aspect of training that candidates integrate theories and contemporary research findings learned at the university to practice in the schools. Safety concerns have shut down schools since March 2020 and with very few exceptions, all fieldwork (as with schooling for K-12 students), have been done virtually. While gains over Covid are emerging (i.e., vaccine), there are still ongoing concerns that suggest that many school psychology candidates will continue to engage in either hybrid or fully virtual fieldwork in the coming year. This panel presentation from several university faculty will offer ideas to school psychology students who are currently or will be entering year 2 (practicum) and year 3 (internship) fieldwork experiences so that they can maximize their experiences.

Reflection, Recovery, and Rejuvenation after COVID-19

This webinar is not eligible for CEUs.
Who would have thought a year ago that we would face an international pandemic that changed the face of education as we knew it?  As we enter the final stretches of this school year, we must ask, how do we support healthy functioning for ourselves and the families we serve?  We are faced with a crucial time to reflect, recover, and rejuvenate from the events of the last year.  Social and emotional supports are in great need as more schools shift in their service delivery model and we closely evaluate the needs of the families we serve. As many students, parents, and staff lack the skills to deal with the magnitude of changes we have faced; mindfulness and other practices are an excellent way to support building of these essential skills to help people thrive.  These skills can be taught efficiently and effectively to support healthy life-long functioning.  This presentation is designed to reflect on the events of the last year, while giving an overview of various types of mind-body practices with practical applications for use in the schools.

Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity


Social Justice and Anti-Systemic Racism Practices

Racial and Ethnic Disparities continue to be an area of deep concern for California. Poor children and children from minority groups are less likely to be identified as gifted and talented, and more likely to be identified as requiring special education services. They are also more likely to attend schools with a greater police presence, increasing the odds that they will enter the criminal justice system. School psychologists have an ethical responsibility to end systemic racism and to promote antiracist policies and practices. This segment will present methodology for providing services to students, while addressing cultural biases that negatively impact outcomes for youth.

A School Based Approach to Promoting the Optimal Development of Black Boys

Academic and life success of Black boys is a critical task of schools. However, many school-based interventions use deficit models of behavior and rarely attend to the unique developmental needs of Black school aged boys. School-based interventions can promote sustainable changes if they are placed in a life course framework. The workshop will build the capacity of school psychologists, administrators and teachers to: 1) define optimal development with parents and communities; 2) design interventions that promote optimal development; and 3) create metrics that account for the strengths and assets of Black boys and their families.

Connection is Key

As a school psychologist, I have learned that one of the most important tools I have is making connections and connecting people with each other. I have been a school psychologist for 14 years and in those years, the connections I have made in various school districts and with people from all professions, have helped me do my job on a daily basis. Whether it’s a question about ELL assessment or language acquisition, or emotional support animals, or just needing a template for a specific assessment I have not yet given, I reach out and get the information I need. This has helped me as the membership co-chair of CASP and in my other positions on the CASP board. In this presentation, I will share my experiences with building relationships, having courageous conversations, and membership in professional organizations, as well as some valuable networking tips. The support system of other school psychologists and colleagues can significantly contribute to being a highly competent school psychologist and career longevity.

How MTSS Teaming Structures Can Help Students in a Post-COVID World

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to schools in supporting students with differentiated needs. We weathered storms of technology access, Wi-Fi hotspots, and being “on mute,” but as educators, we continued to struggle with the feeling of not being able to do enough to support our students in a Distance Learning model. Now we turn our attention to what we can do when students return to our campuses after being out of school for well over a year. The challenges we anticipate can seem overwhelming: students who are far behind with academic learning, coming back to a school and sitting in a classroom, dealing with traumatic events during COVID, and many more. School Psychologists are gearing up to face increased referrals for SPED assessment, requests for retention, and “out-of-control” kids! How can our school systems cope with this demand? Well, the answer might be leveraging our existing teaming structures within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), figuring out who needs what, when they might need it, why they should have it, and how we can deliver it. This workshop will focus on how a large urban school district in Central California has worked to develop problem-solving teams at all tiers to answer those questions. Participants will learn examples of how to intentionally identify need and provide support at all tiers.

Keynote – Power of Possibility

Too often, when working with enormous assessment caseloads and state mandated timelines, school psychologists can find themselves paying more attention to diagnosing the child’s disability (or what they cannot do), to the exclusion of more positive attributes/skills (or what they can do).

Positive psychology is rooted in a humanistic approach and focuses on positive aspects that make life worth living. The Presidential theme for 2020-2021 (The Power of Possibility) emphasizes student strengths that contribute to a better quality of life. By focusing on these positive characteristics (e.g. creativity, grit, humor, love of learning, bravery, and so on), school psychologists can promote happiness, optimism, and resiliency in students.

The Power of Possibility can also be applied to your NASP membership. President Price will provide key NASP updates, and will highlight opportunities to use the power of possibility to expand your role as a school psychologist.

Hello PSW: Using a Neurocognitive Approach for SLD Eligibility and Targeted Interventions

A pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) method for identifying students with a specific learning disability has gained momentum because it is consistent with IDEA regulations and helps answer the question “Why does the student fail?” School psychologists will learn, from a practitioner’s perspective, how to use the Discrepancy Consistency Method for determining a PSW, with emphasis on the use of the CAS2, FAR, and FAM. Case studies will be presented that illustrate the DCM/PSW method, with a comparison of other assessment tools and methodologies. Additionally, interventions that would follow given the cognitive and academic needs of the student, based on assessment results, will be discussed. The overarching goals are to first, become more familiar with a neuropsychological approach for SLD eligibility determination using the CAS2, FAR, and FAM, and secondly illustrate various scenarios involving students with different disabilities (e.g., Dyslexia, ADHD, math calculation, etc.) and different disorders in basic psychological processes.
