AASP Social Justice Resources

As events unfold around the country, we are again reminded that members of our communities face the realities of social injustice every day. As school psychologists, we have a responsibility to help students and their families cope with the challenges they are presented. To that end, the Arizona Association of School Psychologists has created a Social Justice Resources page with links to books, videos and lesson plans that we hope you find beneficial.

AASP has released a Position Statement on Social Justice, Prejudice and Discrimination. Click here for the paper.

Arizona School Psychology Shortage Infographic

As many of you are aware, shortages in school psychologists affects our overall service delivery.  The attached infographic offers an opportunity for each of us to voice key issues to stakeholders and advocate for the work of school psychologists.  As school psychologists, we play a critical role in providing comprehensive support in various areas (school safety, mental health, etc.).  AASP encourages you to share this infographic with key decision makers in your district.
