NASP Practice Model

The NASP Practice Model represents NASP’s official policy regarding the delivery of school psychological services. The 2020 model takes effect July 1, 2020 and builds on the success of the 2010 model in advancing the consistent implementation of school psychological services to help ensure their maximum effectiveness, efficiency, and quality in schools nationwide.

Full implementation of the NASP Practice Model is most often a multi-year process, particularly in states and districts that must build toward the recommended ratio. However, adopting the model as a framework for school psychological services and aligning personnel evaluations and professional development with the model allows school psychologists and district leaders to make progress toward comprehensive service delivery.
