The PsyD in School Psychology Program is based on the Practitioner-Scholar model of training that was developed at the 1973 Vail Conference on Levels and Patterns of Professional Training in Psychology. The goal of the Practitioner-Scholar model is to develop and produce practitioners informed by research as well as practitioners whose training prioritizes the acquisition of practical and hands-on-experiences.
The PsyD in School Psychology Program provides a comprehensive plan of advanced studies that integrates respect for diversity and social justice in theory and practice, basic and advanced psychological principles, consultative and interventionist skills, data-based and problem-solving approaches, and scholarly and research-based learning that moves forward the field of school psychology and the practice with students who are deaf and hard of hearing. School psychologists who are skilled in the delivery of multiple services in a variety of settings (schools, private practice, hospitals, clinics, universities, etc.)
The aims and competencies of the PsyD in School Psychology Program are interconnected with APA’s Standards of Accreditation, NASP’s graduate education training standards, and the program specific aims and competencies.
