PPS Credential Survey

"As you may or may not know, the Pupil Service Credential is being upgraded, with the assistance of many CASP members. The credential has not been updated for 20 years, and the new draft not only looks at today’s reality, but incorporates the NASP model.

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing has issued a survey to get your opinion on the new PPS credential performance expectations. Please take some time to complete this survey. The CTC is especially interested in getting input from newly credentialed school psychologists and those who have been in the field for several years. 

The CTC will be discussing the results of the survey at its June 10 meeting."

DAASP in Response to Tragedy in Connecticut Shooting

Written by Kimberley Robinson


Dear Colleagues,


I would like to share a very passionate conversation I had with a colleague here in Stockton this morning about the shooting in Connecticut.  Of course we were deeply saddened and affected by the death of so many children in such a horrific act of violence, but also to think of the dead of one of our own in the line of duty.  It is a gentle reminder of the volatile situations and people we deal with on a daily basis and what we may take for granted each day at work.  Furthermore, it reminds us of our vulnerabilities and truly how short life can be. 


My colleague and myself want to do something for the family of the fallen psychologist.  We are asking if DAASP and it's members would be willing to support these efforts.  So, I am sending this out to invite you to participate in our efforts to acknowledge, support and send our conductances to the surviving members of the school psychologist who lost her life this 14th day of December 2012.  


Your thoughts and ideas are welcome.


If you would like to contribute, please send your donation to:

(DAASP) Delta Area Association of School Psychologists

Attn: Kim Robinson

Pearson Assistance - Development WPPSI

Pearson Looking for Assistance with Development of Premiere Intelligence Assessment for Young Children


(This is not affiliated with DAASP.  Please contact Julia Kearney below if interested)


This is your invitation to participate in the development of the next edition of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI). 


Pearson, the largest developer of assessments, is taking applications from psychologists, speech language pathologists, and educational diagnosticians to help with the testing of the fourth edition of WPPSI, known as WPPSI-IV.


The tryout phase of testing will be conducted from November 2010 to January 2011.  It will involve administrations of the research edition to children ages 2 years 6 months to 7 years 6 months.


Field examiners are responsible for identifying qualified individuals for the assessments, and then administering the research edition of the product as directed by a Pearson field research coordinator.  Pearson provides compensation to both the examinee and the examiner.  Examiner payment is contingent upon the administration being complete.


Testing times for the WPPSI-IV tryout edition are one to two hours, depending on the age of the examinee.  Examiner payment ranges from $50 to $85, depending on the age of the examinee and whether the examinee is typically developing or has a clinical diagnosis. Examinee payment ranges from $30 to $50 depending upon age band.


In addition to typically developing examinees of all race/ethnic categories, we will be testing children who have been diagnosed with Intellectual Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Intellectual Giftedness.  We will have a bias oversample of typically developing children who are African American or Hispanic.


More Details and Applying for the Project

To view more specifics on the study, please use the following link, which will allow you access to the project application form.

Declining the Project

We'd like to hear from you, even if you are not interested in this project at this time.  Please use the link below to let us know that you are declining the project.

Nominating Candidates

Examiner selection is based on a number of factors, including access to potential examinees.  If you are new to testing for Pearson, or have not tested in the last year, you will receive instructions on accessing the online candidate submittal portal after you apply for this project.


Recruiting Assistance

Pearson will be providing WPPSI examiners two resources to expand your access to examinees, since there will be an increased emphasis on including children of color and children from lower educated families within a relative short collection timeline.  These include a referral program for examinees and a site testing payment for facilities or nonprofit organizations that provide access to examinees or a testing location.

If you would be interested in becoming a testing site, please respond to this message with SITE TESTING INFO in the subject line.

Please feel free to share this with colleagues around the country, as our projects are national in scope.  If you have any questions, let me know.

Message from President - 2010

2010 Presidential Message - Kim Robinson (School Psychologist with SUSD)


Dear DAASP membership,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another school year. Many of you may recognize me as a past president of DAASP. Well, I'm here to say I'm stepping up again to keep this very important association/affiliate alive. I would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest board members, Janet Castellanos (President Elect) and Evelyn Teran (Secretary/Treasurer). Both are fairly new psychologists to Stockton Unified School District and are excited to assist me in making this a productive and worthwhile year for DAASP. Our association, profession and districts have had some tough challenges the last couple of years, but that is more of a reason to keep our association strong, vivid and intact. I believe it is so important to network, in-service and keep each other abreast of the ever changing laws, regulations and budget woes we face individually.


With all that in mind, below you will find upcoming dates and events to mark on your calendar:


1.)  I have a tentative date for a luncheon/in-service on Comprehensive Behavior Interventions for Young Children with Autism presented by Fresno Diagnostic Center. The presentation will take place on Friday Sept.10th 11:30-4:00pm (Luncheon 11:30-1:00, in-service 1:15 to 4:00). I spoke with the director weeks ago; however, her presenters have not returned to the new school year yet, so she still needs to confirm. There are several presentations (listed on the website) the Fresno Diagnostic Center does for free, so if there is something of particular interest, please let me know for future in-services.


2.) The annual chili cook off is set for Saturday October 23rd from 5-9pm. Nancy and Pat Blakeman have graciously offered to host the event at their home in Ripon this year (see the attached flyer). Each year the proceeds from the evening are donated to a charitable agency on behalf of our efforts, so please mark your calendar and plan to support our fund-raising efforts. Last year, we decided to donate $100 dollars to the - Ray of Hope agency in Manteca, a non profit organization that grants wishes to hundreds of needy children via a Christmas Guardian Angel program and a Christmas dinner.


3.) School Psychology Awareness Week is November 8-12, 2010. Since many of us have Thursday and Friday off that week, I thought it would be nice to kick off the week with a DAASP reception on Monday from 4:30-6:30pm. More details will follow at a later date.  I have notice other affiliates to honor there own with Leadership and Professional Recognition Awards Ceremonies during this week. I was wondering if our membership would be interested in doing something like that. Please let me know your thoughts on the idea.


4.) CASP convention is set for April 14-16th, 2011. It will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa, which is near Disneyland, Huntington and Newport beaches.


5.) NASP convention is set for February 22-25, 2011. It will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.


Last but not least, check out the DAASP website online. Go to www.freewebs.com/daasp to check it out. We would like to keep it up to date and add relevant information for our members. We even thought it might be a good place to do a survey to see what the current needs are of our association.


Please forward this to your colleagues that are not on my list and encourage them to join DAASP and/or at least make contact with one of the new board members so we can get them on the mailings. Membership continues to be $15 dollars/$7.50 for students.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

CASP TODAY - Summer 2008

Summer 2008 Issue of CASP Today - CASP Affiliate Update on DAASP 2007-08 School Year


Submitted by May Lee-Dacuycuy, Past President


The 2007-08 school year came and gone in a flash. Lets look back on what we had accomplished this year. We started the year on September 14, 2007 with a workshop by Dr. Diane Donaldson on the second edition of the Process Assessment of the Learner (PAL-II).


On September 22, 2007 we held our annual Chili-Cook Off fundraiser to raise fund for the cause of child advocacy in our area. This year we donated to the Buddy Walk, which is a worthy event to raise awareness and fund for the Brighterside of Down Syndrome of San Joaquin County.


On April 23, 2008 DAASP hosted a workshop with Harcourt Assessment, Inc. and welcomed Dr. Colin Elliott to present on the second edition of the Differential Ability Scale (DAS-2). We had a great response and attendance.


We traditionally have two social events. One is held at the beginning of the year during School Psychology Week. The other is the year-end social to announce new officers, honor psychologists and to celebrate our accomplishments. We are continuing to work at increasing social participation and building network relationship.


Planning for next year is in full throttle. Our first workshop on the NEPSY-2 is scheduled for September 5. 2008. We are planning for our annual fundraiser event for mid-September. DAASP is always committed to providing continue professional development, networking opportunities and promoting child advocacy.
