And now a word from our legal staff:
Copyright infringement is a violation of federal law subject to criminal and civil penalties. "NASP" and "THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS" are service marks of the National Association of School Psychologists.

Only those documents which have been approved by the Delegate Assembly form the official positions of NASP, and those will be clearly noted within the website. All other documents reflect the ideas and positions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the positions or ideas of the National Association of School Psychologists. The responsibility for the content of those documents lies solely with the authors.

The information provided in this website is - by necessity - of a general, impersonal nature. It should only be applied to a specific situation under the guidance of a fully qualified school psychologist who is familiar with the situation and the individuals involved. It is in no way an adequate substitute for a consultation with a school psychologist.

The contents of all material available on this Internet site are copyrighted by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) unless otherwise indicated. Copyright is not claimed as to any part of an original work prepared by a US. or state government officer or employee as part of that person's official duties. All rights are reserved by NASP and content may not be reproduced, downloaded, disseminated, published, or transferred in any form or by any means except with the prior written permission of NASP as indicated below.

Using NASP Copyrighted Materials for Educational Purposes

NASP recognizes that items from our journal are frequently used in classes and in-services, and are sometimes included in course assignments and anthologies. An important court decision recently affirmed the need for educators to obtain authorization for copying such materials. Since that decision, a substantial increase in these requests has created an administrative burden for our small staff. Therefore, in order to more efficiently process requests for one-time educational usage, NASP entered into an agreement with the Copyright Clearance Center for its Academic Permissions Service (APS) to serve as a clearinghouse for requests and collector of a modest, $0.15 per-page/per copy fee.

To request permission to photocopy, please contact:

APS Customer Service Department
CCC Academic Permission Service
222 Rosewood Drive
Danvers, MA 01923

An APS Customer Service Representative will process your requests and provide a response containing photocopy authorization and royalty fee information on behalf of NASP.

Thank you again for your interest, and your willingness to comply with the copyright laws.
