- Space for vendors has been filled. We are not currently accepting exhibitors. Please contact the OSPA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of any last-minute availability.
- Team Discount:
- The focus on intervention and counseling with behaviorally challenging students would be of particular interest to anyone working with this population including intervention or behavior specialists, PBIS coordinators, counselors, or intervention assistance team members. The presenters are planning time during the sessions to allow teams to work together to problem-solve strategies through presentation of case studies.
We encourage OSPA members to attend along with other professionals from their schools. Team members can register at the same rate as OSPA members if they are accompanied by OSPA members. The team member discount is not available online; please submit paper forms for each attendee. Please submit registration forms for all teams members together. Registration forms for non-school psychologist team members will not be processed at the discounted rate until the sponsoring school psychologist registers.
- CEUs for Other Fields:
- The Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapists Board has approved the OSPA Spring Conference for pre-approved CEUs for those practitioners. Marriage and Family Therapists, Counselors and Social Workers can earn the following credits during the conference: 3 hours for the Wednesday evening Ethics session; 5.75 hours for the Thursday session; 5.5 hours for the Friday session.
