School Psychology Awareness Week

The State of Illinois & Bethesda, MD—The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) has designated November 12–16, 2018, as National School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW). This year’s theme, "Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!" highlights how thinking about specific skills, assets, or characteristics as passwords can lead to positive growth. Throughout the week, schools across the country will be taking part in events and activities designed to generate energy and reinforce the connections that power thriving school communities.

Check out our resources from NASP, learn about how to engage with your congressional leaders for Virtual Hill Day, and view the Illinois proclamation signed by the governor.

Annual Fundraiser

When a child is diagnosed with a critical illness, a family’s world turns upside down. Schedules become dominated by hospital visits and medical treatments. Free time slips away. But Give Kids The World Village gives some of that time back.

This year we have teamed up with Give Kids The World Village, an 84-acre, nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with critical illnesses and their families.  Donate today or create your own team to help ISPA reach its fundraising goal.
