LSU Shreveport School Psychology Program Receives Seven Year Accreditation

February 07, 2012
The Specialist in School Psychology (SSP) program at LSU Shreveport was recently granted the highest accreditation available to trainers of school psychologists. The program director, Dr. Kevin Jones, was informed in January that the program received full approval by the National Association of School Psychologists for the next seven years, passing national standards on 92% of quality indicators.


The evaluation report commended the program on its rigor and "use of assessment data to modify the program so that skills are developed more sequentially." School psychologists provide an array of assessment, intervention, and counseling services to schoolchildren who are experiencing learning, social-emotional, and developmental challenges. With this designation, graduates of the 72-hour program are automatically eligible for state and national certification.
