Legislative Lowdown: OSPA Works to Address School Psych Shortage

The Department of Education with the help of the Ohio School Psychologists Association and other groups has released resources to address shortages among related service providers.
OSPA spent the first quarter of the year collaborating with stakeholders on the Related Service Shortage Workgroup.
OSPA was represented on the panel by Executive Director Ann Brennan, OSPA Early Career Co-Chair John Biltz, and University of Dayton School Psychology Professor Susan Davies.
