New Jersey Association of School Psychologists
Welcome to NJASP! We are nonprofit professional association organized in 1958 for school psychologists working or living in New Jersey
Thank you legislators, pediatricians, psychiatrists and Statewide Parent Advocacy Network.
Now, it is time to remind NJ that school psychologists are part of the solution!
School psychologists are uniquely positioned to provide mental and behavioral health services in schools.
School Psychologists: Qualified Mental Health Professionals Providing Child and Adolescent Mental and Behavioral Health Services
The National Association of School Psychologists advocates for coordinated, comprehensive, and culturally responsive school mental and behavioral health services delivered within a multitiered system to address the mental and behavioral health needs of all students. These services include wellness promotion,prevention, early intervention, and therapeutic supports for emerging problems and concerns, as well as intensive therapeutic services for students with the most severe needs. School psychologists also are uniquely trained to bridge the gap that exists between schools and community resources and should be key facilitators of communication and collaboration with community agencies and related professionals on behalf of individual students and families. School psychologists whose graduate preparation, credentialing,and/or continuing professional development qualifies them as providers of child and adolescent mental and behavioral health services should be involved in the development, delivery, and evaluation of school based mental and behavioral health services.
