Professional Associations

As a student in one of our programs, you are expected to have a strong professional commitment demonstrated by membership in several professional associations at the state, regional, and national levels.

At the state level, each program expects that students will not only join their specialty association, but attend meetings and workshops, and be prepared to become leaders in their field.  Our students have consistently had professional papers and research accepted for presentations. 

Below are links to professional associations that can provide you with more information about the overall area of school psychology.

National Association of School Psychologists
Connecticut Association of School Psychologists
American Psychological Association
