A Comprehensive & Integrated Framework for Services

As a school psychologist, you play a vital role in lowering barriers to learning, which is essential to ensuring that all students are achieving their best academically, socially, and emotionally. The NASP Practice Model provides a framework for broad-based service delivery (assessment, collaboration, consultation, prevention, intervention, and evaluation) that best meets the needs of all students while also supporting teachers' ability to teach. Often, facilitating the changes in school culture necessary to establish comprehensive and coordinated services takes commitment and patience. This section of the guide provides steps to help you and your colleagues move toward a comprehensive service delivery model by identifying and addressing pressing needs in your school or district.
