Research Requests

In support of transferring research into best practices, ASPP is offering a service to both researchers and practitioners. 
For researchers, we invite you to post the information about your project and how school psychologists in PA may be able to assist in your study. In order for us to do this we need to gather information from you. Please submit a description of your study, your IRB approval, and any other supporting documents. We will post your information on the this page as well as our Facebook Page along with any appropriate links. After each quarterly review of applicants, we email our members if your study is approved.
Please review the Research Opportunities policies and procedures before requesting a posting.
To request a posting on the research opportunities page, contact the website committee through the Contact Us page.
 For our members, please make sure to check out the current research opportunities and help support the advancement of our field!
