Resources & Periodicals
As a member, you will receive eight issues of the Communiqué newspaper delivered to your door annually. Our quarterly peer-reviewed journals, School Psychology Review and School Psychology Forum, are available in an online format. Members have online access to all current and past issues of NASP periodicals. We also offer a variety of downloadable handouts on the topics that you frequently encounter in your practice, many of which are designed to share with families, teachers, and administrators.
NASP membership provides you with a built-in community of fellow school psychologists, who are able to relate to the successes, concerns, and subject matter areas that you encounter most in your practice. Ask for help or advice from your peers in NASP's online, member-only Communities, or share your passion for a specific area of focus in over 25 Interest Group communities. You can also connect with 5,000 school psychologists at the annual convention, or get in-depth, in-person training at the summer conferences.
Advocacy for the Profession
NASP advocates on your behalf for legislation and policies on the topics that affect you most: protecting the profession, providing access to school-based mental health services, keeping schools safe for all students, and more. In addition to our advocacy efforts, we provide you with the tools to advocate in your school, community, state, and beyond though the Advocacy Action Center. Many of our members choose to engage in advocacy efforts during School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) each November, and we also offer a wide variety of resources to support your efforts.

NASP members also receive special discounts on professional resources, including registration for the annual convention and summer conferences, continuing professional development opportunities in the Online Learning Center, NCSP applications and renewals, and NASP publications.
