Study Groups and Mini Skills
NHASP sponsors a variety of ongoing study groups and mini skills presentations. These events are generally designed for smaller groups that our large full day conference events and allow for a more in-depth exploration of a specific topic.
Study Group: Executive Skills
The study group led by Peg Dawson will continue for the 2016-2017 school year. This group will focus on developing elementary and secondary level classroom-based interventions to support executive skill development for all students, including those with executive skill weaknesses. Participants who are able to assist in implementing these interventions are particularly welcome to join the group, but others who want to participate in intervention design are also welcome. The group will split in two after the first session, with one section focusing on elementary level interventions and the second focusing on middle/high school interventions. Teams of school psychologists and teachers are particularly welcome!

Early Career Group
NHASP hosts an Early Career Group facilitated by Jonas Taub. All school psychologists in NH with 5 or fewer years of experience are welcome to attend the group meetings. This year we have a spirited group of early career and experienced school psychologists. The first meeting included dialog of individual cases, discussions comparing scores on the WISC-IV and WISC-V and how to explain score differences across evals, behavioral goals for preschoolers, and the challenges of balancing roles, acclimating to new settings, managing culture and politics, and expanding one's skills.
All meetings take place on Mondays in Concord at the Plymouth State University offices at 2 Pillsbury Street, 5th Floor, from 4:00 to 6:00PM. RSVP is not required, but it is appreciated to help plan for space. Contact Jonas Taub with questions or if you are interested in attending.
