 October 26th - Thursday | DAY 1 KEYNOTE:  CHARLES BARRETT, PHD

Dr. Barrett  firmly believes that his professional practice is always about children.  Informed by principles of justice and equity, his scholarship, presentations, and workshops are centered on promoting positive outcomes for children's academic, social, emotional, and behavioral well-being. 

October 27th - Friday | DAY 2 KEYNOTE:  JACK NAGLIERI, PHD

Dr. Naglieri is a prolific researcher and has developed many of the tests we use everyday in our school practice. In recent years, he has drawn more attention to the need for fair and equitable assessment of intelligence. Workshop attendees find him to be both thought provoking and practical in his approach.

Continuing Education Policy

The Massachusetts School Psychologists Association is approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to offer contact hours. The DESE requires the completion of a pre-test, which will be sent to participants via email in the week prior to the conference. A post-test is also required and will be given at the end of the workshop. Participants must attend the ENTIRE CONFERENCE and satisfy state regulations in order to receive contact hours. Each participant is responsible for knowing and meeting the DESE licensure requirements.

CE HOURS: The Massachusetts School Psychologists Association is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists to sponsor continuing education (CE) for psychologists. In keeping with NASP requirements, these are awarded in contact hours only. CE hours will be awarded at the close of the workshop. MSPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Arriving more than 15 minutes late or failing to stay for the entire program will result in the inability to obtain a PD certificate. Certificates will only be distributed at the conclusion of the program to individuals who have arranged for payment.
