Tennessee Association of School Psychologists (TASP) in conjunction with Alabama and Mississippi state associations, will be hosting two days of professional development and networking in October. Due to the pandemic, the conference will be held virtually through WHOVA and Zoom platforms. You may register and pay online or download a registration form and pay by check.
We have a strong lineup of presenters, including:

Dr. McClure has presented at the NASP national conference in San Antonio, Texas, Chicago, Illinois, Atlanta, Georgia, and most recently in Baltimore, Maryland. He was also a keynote speaker at the Florida Association of School Psychologists Summer Institute and recently at the San Diego County Equity Conference.
