Even though it is April plans are coming together for the big NYASP 2013 conference! Proposals for Conference 2013 will be accepted Feb. 1, 2013 – May 31, 2013
The NYASP Conference 2013 will be held in White Plains, N.Y. October 24-26. The theme of the 2013 NYASP Conference is Expanding the Role of the School Psychologist, and focuses on the many hats that we wear as school psychologists. We understand that school psychologists are both scholars and practitioners. To that end, the conference committee has endeavored to pair theory and practice, offering workshops on applied, solution-oriented activities which are based upon sound theory and best practice.
Current workshop topics include identification and treatment of learning disabilities, prevention through PBIS, RTI and other Tier II activities, bullying, spectrum disorders, ADHD/executive function, early childhood, emotional disorders and behavioral health.
The conference will also feature two panels focusing on school-based programs on PBIS and Autism Spectrum Disorders. If your school has a particularly effective and innovative program that you are particularly proud of, please consider submitting a proposal to be included on the panel. We are soliciting papers from our membership that would reflect the theme and the goals of the conference.
Papers should be submitted via the NYASP website no later than May 31, 2013. Instructions for submitting your proposal is detailed on the NYASP Call for Proposal site.
