If you need to contact a particular school psychologist, their e-mail address and phone number is provided below. Although we currently do a five person rotation on all incoming referrals, we nevertheless have schools for which we serve as their primary contact. See below:
I recommended these to my buildings because they’re free and full of research-based interventions that are available by area of topic or concern. The first gives well-organized & concise interventions that can be easily printed and conveniently cites the sources, while the latter offers data-driven information on how effective a particular intervention is according to all available research (e.g., Reading Recovery). Both of the websites are user friendly. Of course the NASP website (www.nasponline.org) is full of wonderful information by topic as well.
The IDEA Partnership reflects the collaborative work of more than 55 national organizations, technical assistance providers, and organizations and agencies at state and local level. It also includes a library of resources.

I would like for parents to be aware of the information available through the National Association of School Psychologists, the American Psychological Association, and the research on resilience in children from Goldstein and Brooks in Pennsylvania. Student Resilience is relevant to parent concerns!
SchoolPsychology.net has information for everyone (psychologists, parents and teachers) on several different conditions, disorders, etc. I also use Intervention Central and NASP Online.
I like the following resources:
Aswww.interventioncentral.comIntervention Central is committed to the goal of making quality Response-to-Intervention resources available to educators at no cost--especially in these times of tight school budgets. The site was created in 2000 by Jim Wright, school psychologist and school administrator from Central New York. Visit to check out newly posted academic and behavioral intervention strategies, download publications on effective teaching practices, and use tools that streamline classroom assessment and intervention.
The IRISCenter is a national center that aims to provide high-quality resources for about students with disabilities. IRIS seeks to obtain this goal by providing free, online, interactive training enhancements that translate research about the education of students with disabilities into practice.
http://nasponline.org While this website is primarily for other school psychologists, it also has resources for parents and teachers as well. For example...
There is a wonderful handout for parents on fostering gratitude that appeared online www.nasponline.org then click on Communiqué Online. Research has demonstrated that individuals who experience gratitude have a variety of positive outcomes including more positive emotions such as joy, love, and happiness. (Emmons & McCullough, 2003; Emmons, 2007)
Another site that caught my eye was www.disneydigitalbooks.com, which looked like a wonderful parent resource to encourage their children to read.
I also teach at IU Southeast and the preschool through grade 12 teachers share resources with one another as well. Below is a sampling of those resources for your consideration:
This is a great website that I use in my classrooms in just about all subject areas.You can find very kid friendly PowerPoint presentations to show to your kids as well as lots of games for the kids to play to practice the skills and concepts.
