NASP Model-10 Domains of Practice

Professional growth educational sessions were selected to represent the range of professional practice domains for school psychologists that are contained in the Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services. School psychologists are encouraged to review the domains, identify areas in which you need professional development, and select sessions that meet these needs. Building skills across all domains supports comprehensive practice, national certification, and ethical standards. A brief self-assessment tool and additional information on the NASP Practice Model and NASP Standards are available at www.nasponline.org/practicemodel.
