  • PMD: 2,10
  • Skill Level: Advanced

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. apply an overview of the 2020 Integrated Standards and the NASP Practice Model to specific field supervision activities.
  2. describe mechanisms/strategies that facilitate integration of the NASP Practice Model into candidates’ field experiences.
  3. identify supervision activities aligned to the NASP Practice Model and developmental needs of candidates.
  4. develop strategies to overcome supervision barriers across the domains.
  5. orient and apply the Q-Sort technique (QST) to an applied topic in the supervision of school psychology candidates.


With the recent adoption of the NASP Professional Standards (2020), including the Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services (the NASP Practice Model), this presentation aims to engage current and future field supervisors, as well as graduate educators, in hands-on activities they can conduct to strengthen alignment between field assignments and NASP domains. Presenters will address how field supervisors can make connections between candidates’ applied experiences and the Practice Model’s Six Organizational Principles.
