Promoting Reading Achievement

A partnership of NASP and Reading Rockets

School psychologists play a critical role in the lives of children who are struggling to learn. They are leaders in developing and carrying out the assessment and placement decisions that impact students from the beginning of their school careers. With help from school psychologists like you, schools can reduce the number of students who lag behind grade level - and increase the number of successful readers.

A Free Toolkit for School Psychologists

Picture of child You are welcome to download a new toolkit for school psychologists created by Reading Rockets and NASP. The kit contains resources to help you get more involved in the development of comprehensive research-based reading programs in your school district; apply evidence-based strategies to your assessments of students with reading difficulties; help students become good readers; and keep more kids from unnecessarily entering special education.

For materials specifically for school psychologists, including video modules from the toolkit, click here.

NASP members may order a copy of the Reading Rockets Toolkit for School Psychologists.
