NASP preview

It’s that time of year again. It’s time to bust out that convention planner and try and fit in everything you want to do in a few days at the NASP (National Association of School Psychologists) annual convention! I first attended the convention two years ago when it was conveniently held in Philadelphia. This year, it will be held in Washington, D.C. from February 17-21. I will be attending with a few girls in my cohort from Tuesday through Thursday. There are so many networking events as well as presentations and poster sessions that we plan to attend. Here are a few things I’m looking forward to:

Tuesday February 18

Assessment for Intervention in SLD Referrals Using the Cross-Battery Approach mini skills presentation 12pm-1:50pm
