Books:
OSPA Book Study: The association has received funding through the Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Exceptional Children to create a Community of Practice for you!  One of the ways we are doing that is by creating a monthly book study.  This year’s book is What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing. Club sessions will beheld on Zoom, facilitated by Jennifer Glenn, NCSP, and with dates and times to be determined by those interested in participating. This book study is offered at no cost and only to OSPA members.  Click Here to sign up and opt to pick up your copy at the OSPA conference or have it mailed to you for free.
