School Psychology

The school psychology program is fully approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and recognized by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE); therefore, graduates of the Gallaudet program may receive certification as school psychologists in the many states that recognize NASP/ NCATE accredited training programs. The program identifies six NCATE Transition Points that serve as benchmarks for monitoring progress through the program:

Entrance Into the Program,
Awarding the M.A. in Developmental Psychology,
Advancement to Practicum II,
Advancement to Internship,
Awarding the Specialist Degree in School Psychology,
Alumni Status.

In keeping with national accreditation practices, school psychology students participate in the university TK20 Assessment System which requires a one-time fee. The completion of the specified school psychology program satisfies the training requirements for school psychology certification in the District of Columbia Public Schools.
