ISPA Supervisor Credential Program Begins


We are very excited to announce the kickoff of the ISPA Supervisor Virtual Credential Program.  This is the first of its kind in the country!

Recognizing NASP’s identification of supervisory skills as a core professional competency and making a commitment to support excellence in field supervision for practicum students, interns, early career and veteran school psychologists, the ISPA Supervisor Credential Program will offer training in contemporary best practices for field-based supervision.
