Registration is Now Open! 

October 23-25, 2019 in Houston, Texas

The 2019 Texas Association of School Psychologists' Fall Convention will be held Wednesday through Friday, October 23-25th, at the Westin Galleria Houston in Houston, Texas. Internet and parking are provided free of charge during the convention. The theme of this year's convention is a reminder of how dynamic our profession competencies are beyond the assessment role.  We are trained to provide and embrace a comprehensive model of services and each of us has the potential to shift systems at the local, state, and national levels.  We have invited several NASP leaders from across the country to help us celebrate the profession and share their experiences as school psychologists and leaders of our profession. Pre-convention topics include social-emotional learning and best practices in bilingual assessment. Convention sessions feature a wide variety of topics including: Social-emotional learning, crisis response and intervention, mental health service delivery models in school districts, multi-tiered systems of support, and assessment.

TASP has transitioned to open registration for the regular convention sessions.  Attendees will no longer select individual sessions at the time of registration and sessions will be available on a first come, first serve basis at convention.  To ensure the best availability, attendees are encouraged to arrive early or on time at the session of their choice.  Attendee QR codes will be scanned upon entrance to document attendance, which is necessary in order to receive credit for continuing professional development (CPD).  Once the session reaches the allowable room capacity limit, the session will be closed and additional attendees will not be allowed to enter the session.  As in the past, attendees MUST be scanned within the first 15 minutes of the session in order to be counted present.    

In addition, we are excited to host our first School Psychology Job Fair on Thursday, October 24th from 4:30-6:00 p.m.!  We welcome Texas school districts to register to reserve a table and take advantage of this opportunity to network with LSSPs and potentially fill open positions across the state.  The job fair is offered free of charge to school districts, so reserve a table now before spots fill to capacity!
