School Psychology Awareness Week T-shirt Competition!
From Jesse Drillings, WCU NASP Student Leader:

Hello local WCU alumni!

I am the current NASP student leader at WCU. Our program is participating in a School Psychology Awareness Week t-shirt competition with the students at App State. Our program and App's program will be wearing our t-shirts to the Mountain Region Drive-In in November for those who attend to vote on their favorite! We are about to place our orders for the t-shirts and wanted to offer our local alumni an opportunity to purchase one as well! We will be giving away a few shirts as door prizes at the Drive-In; however, we only have 5 to give away! Right now the shirts are in the $16-$18 range depending on how many people order. The more people who order, the cheaper the shirts will be! Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing one and what size you want by Monday, October 20th (email: jldrillings@email.wcu.edu). Here is a link to the shirt design:

Those who order can pay for and pick up their shirts at the Drive-In, or come by our clinic on campus.

Thank you so much!

2014 Fall Conference Asheville Session Handouts
Please see the link below to download, print, save, or whatever you want to do, the handouts and slides of the individual sessions.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/17628k1ffxi14db/AABMRdb_7npUT5tcoSoeL-lLa?dl=0.

Not all are there yet. If one of your sessions is missing, please check back soon... they will be uploaded as soon as we get them..

A couple tips...
  • If you choose to print the PowerPoint presentations and like the space for notes on the side, select to print "notes page" under the Print What section of the Print Dialog Box.
  • You will need Acrobat Reader to download the PDFs (most of you already have that, but if it's not opening, that might be why)

Save the Date: Mountain Region Fall Drive-In!
Based upon member feedback, many of you requested information on the new WISC-V and Q-Interactive. The WISC-V is not being released until late October so this was the earliest date possible for this training with the test kit in hand. A similar training will be provided at the NCSPA Fall Conference without the test kit in hand. So, you can attend other sessions at the conference and then participate in this training a month later!

November Drive-In Workshop Topics:

WISC-V

KTEA-3

Q-Interactive

Date:
Friday, 11/7/14

Time:
8:30 4:30 (1 hour lunch break)

Biltmore Park WCU Instructional Facility
28 Schenck Pkway
Room 346
Asheville, NC

NCSPA Fall Conference
Date: Sunday, October 5, 2014 - Tuesday, October 7, 2014 Address: Asheville Renaissance 31 Woodfin St. Asheville, North Carolina 28801

Phone: (828) 252-8211

Description: The NCSPA board and Fall Conference Committee invites you to participate in our 2014 Fall Conference in Asheville, NC.

The conference theme this year is Advocating For the Needs of All Students. Whether you want to learn about the DSM-5, WJ-IV, WISC-V, crisis incident training, MTSS implementation and assessment, or case law, there are workshops for you! This value priced conference will provide you with tools you can use today, and up to 16 Continuing Education (CE) units.

This year we have reformatted the sessions. On Sunday, you will now be able to attend up to two of four available sessions (morning and afternoon sessions) instead of one day long session.

The program for this year's conference was built around the North Carolina standards for professional practice and the Performance Appraisal Instrument (PAI). We have sessions relevant for practitioners serving children across all levels, from preschool on up, across tiers, for academics, behavior, emotional skills, as well as on issues of professional and ethical interest to our colleagues.

The full conference includes a full day of workshops and, half-day of workshops morning, advocacy reception, student reception, the NCSPA banquet, raffle and reception, membership meeting, and a conference notebook... not to mention at least two and one half days of professional networking and fun! Bring your laptop and/or tablet so you can download the handouts directly; we encourage you to download the handouts before the conference so as not to be burden the limited wifi.

Since we do not work in isolation in our schools or practice, we encourage you to invite your colleagues! Your fellow school counselors, social workers, SST coordinators, preschool teams, RtI coaches, intervention coordinators, and IRTs would benefit, too!

Please use the tabs across the top to learn more about fees, agenda, and hotel. Then click "Register" to start your conference registration. Contact us at ncspamembers@gmail.com if you have any questions! We look forward to seeing you soon.
