NHASP sponsors Professional Development opportunities several times a year. The fall conference is geared to topics related to School Mental Health. The spring conference promotes instructional and intervention topics related to education. The winter membership meeting is available to members only and addresses topics relevant specifically to school psychologists.
NHASP also sponsors Professional Development activities through special interest groups and regional meetings. There are also many great professional development events available in NH and regionally that can be found at our Friend's Event page.
