What is a

School Psychologist?

According to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP),“School psychologists have specialized training in both psychology and education. They use their training and skills to team with educators, parents, and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. School psychologists understand school systems, effective teaching and successful learning. Today’s children face more challenges than ever before. School psychologists can provide solutions for tomorrow’s problems through thoughtful and positive actions today.”

History of MASP

MASP is an outgrowth of the School Psychology Association of Maine (SPAM). Originally, school psychological service providers in Maine were represented by the Division of School Psychology (16), part of the American Psychological Association (APA) and Maine Psychological Association (MePA). In the early 1990’s the Division’s executive committee decided to secede from APA/MePA. This was necessary for Maine’s organization of school psychologists to affiliate with the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). That’s how SPAM was formed. The name of the organization was changed to the Maine Association of School Psychology in 2000, when the by-laws were changed.
