A Visionary Approach to the School Psychologist Shortage: Building a Future that Inspires and Drives Educational Change
In 2020-21, NASP reported Indiana School Psychologist to student ratio was 1:1,674. This ratio will continue to rise as we continue to face many obstacles in growing the field of School Psychology. Do you remember how you felt when you entered graduate school and wanted to change the lives of children? Do you want to do more than assessment, get teachers to understand the research behind interventions, meet with students struggling with mental health, and generally make a deeper impact on education? Then we must do more than advocate. We have to become visionaries and proactive by creating opportunities for interest, access, supervision, and mentorship within the field.
