The Future of School Psychology


Mission Statement

It has been 25 years since school psychology last held a major conference to reflect on the profession and to develop an agenda for the future. School psychology has undergone a tremendous growth in terms of membership in our profession and the vision we have for the work that we do. Currently, and for the foreseeable future, we are faced with a shortage of school psychologists that threatens our capacity to meet the needs of children in schools. Furthermore, the needs and pressures facing children growing up in America today are greater than they have been in our lifetime. Given the changes we are facing and their implications for the practice of school psychology, we hope to:

  1. Achieve consensus on current and future demands for school psychologists and our profession's ability to meet those demands.
  2. Conceptualize the practice of school psychology in the face of diminishing numbers and increasing demand for services.
  3. Develop an agenda to use the resources we have to maximize the benefits to the children and schools that we serve.
