Still Missing: Student Voices in School Psychology Research 2010–2019

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 9
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 7: Psychological Services for Specific Groups of Students

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand and apply inclusive research concepts in their own evaluations and investigations.
  2. identify and describe the importance of collecting social validity and acceptability data across a variety of practice domains and contexts.
  3. understand the importance of including student voice in the the design, implementation, and evaluation of school psychology services.


This study expands on a previous investigation of the inclusion of student voice in school psychology research (Roach et al., 2009). We reviewed articles published in four major school psychology journals between 2010 and 2020. Articles were coded as including student voice if the experiences, opinions, and perceptions of the participating students were solicited via surveys, questionnaires, interviews, or social validity measures. Implications of the findings for school psychology research and practice will be discussed.
