SAVE THE DATE--AASP 2014 Fall Conference
The 46th annual AASP fall conference is coming! Plan to join us at the Desert Willow Conference Center in Phoenix, November 6-7 to explore this year’s theme: “Assessment and Intervention: Digging Deeper to Impact the Lives of Children.” On Thursday Dr. Elaine Fletcher-Jenzen, school psychologist, neuropsychologist, and professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology will be presenting a workshop on “The Neurodevelopmental Model of Comprehensive Assessment in School Psychology.” She writes: “The study of neuropsychology involves a curiosity about brain-behavior relationships, a general understanding of how the brain is functionally organized, and knowledge of how the brain changes over from infancy to adulthood. These three perspectives create a general awareness of how neuroscience translates from the bench to the desk and the value of neuropsychological perspectives in school psychology practice. This workshop will present a theoretical and practice model for assessment and intervention in the schools.” Plan to join this and other stimulating conversations about the practice of school psychology.
