So, the question is somewhat off topic, but I figure that many of us have a specialist degree so I'll ask here.
So, sometimes when I am filling out online surveys or research surveys for various purposes, it will ask about the degree that I have. This will usually be a part of the general demographic information (such as age, marital status, household income, etc.). Usually, they don't have an option for specialist degree. It will only include High School, Some College, Bachelors, Masters, Professional, Doctorate. Usually under the Professional category, they give the JD, MD, DDS, LLB as examples. Under Masters it says MA, MSW, MS, MBA.
So, I am wondering which category you think most closely fits our degree. Would you choose Masters or Professional?
I learned the ADOS-2 while in grad school. I have administered the ADOS-2 out in the field as well. But, I am wondering if there is any such thing as an official "ADOS-2 certification?" I know that there are workshops for learning the ADOS-2, but do they present you with some kind of certificate that says you are "ADOS-2 Certified?"
The reason I ask is because of this job description that mentions "ADOS-2 certification" as a requirement. I am wondering if I would meet the qualifications or not.
I was reading NASP's vision statement on supervision today and I was agreeing with how important it is to have mentors available at every point in your career.
However, in some districts, Principals actually supervise school psychologists. While I know mentorship could be obtained in other ways, what are your thoughts on this? I am somewhat hesitant to put my career in the hands of someone who doesn't really understand your job.
I am currently working at a public high school in California. I have been there for 6 years. I just had a baby in December so I’m looking for a job closer to home because right now I have a 45-55 minute commute each way. I have applied at a charter school. Has anyone worked at one before? What is it like? How is it different than traditional public schools? I should also note that this charter school is a homeschooling program, so students meet with teachers like once a week for monitoring. From what I understand, students still have IEPs and meetings, and they would still need to be assessed. Any info anyone can share is appreciated!
I am in my last semester of college getting a degree in Psychology and plan to apply to Ed.S programs in the fall. I have been very anxious about the future in general recently and I am looking for outside perspectives. How difficult are the Ed.S programs in Florida to get into? I seem to meet minimum requirements of the programs I've looked at, but I'm worried there is strong competition. I have a 3.63 GPA, research experience, volunteer experience over the summers with children. I have yet to take the GRE. Of course there is no way of knowing for sure, but based on that short history does it seem reasonable that I have a chance of getting into programs?
I have been a school psych for going on 7 years. I have gotten to do a lot in the last few years as far as creating programs, being a positive agent for change, presenting at conferences, etc. Last year and this year, however, the district has had me take on a lot more administrative responsibilities like smoothing over other peoples’ mistakes with meetings, dealing with difficult parents, etc.
I just had a baby in December. My commute to work is an hour each way. There is a charter school down the street from my house with an open position. I’m thinking of applying but was always under the impression that all it is are triennials, writing reports and going to IEPs. Does anyone have experience in a charter school? What are your roles there? Do you like it?
So, I know that we as school psychologists are eligible for the Perkins Loan deferment / cancellation, however, I am trying to figure out what to write as a job description to get approved. I was told that we qualify under the category of "a special education teacher of disabled children" and to emphasize that I work with special education students in the description, but I am unsure of exactly what to write.
So, those of you who have been approved for this, what did you write exactly for the job description?
So I am wondering if you all have any resources, websites or otherwise, that have a collection of behavior Interventions? I have been looking around and have not found a website that had a collection of interventions, especially evidence based ones. If anyone has any ideas for resources, that would be awesome!
I am a school psychology graduate student with an interview at an education service district in Oregon. I am studying in South Dakota, so are there any tips you have or important things I should know or keep in mind going into my interview? Any advice is appreciated!
