As an added benefit to conference participants, ISPA offers the opportunity to participate in several pre-conference workshops to help school psychologists from across the world gain new knowledge and skills in specific topics.

The half-day pre-conference workshops will take place on Tuesday July 14th 2020, the day of the opening of the ISPA 2020 conference and the day before the regular conference program begins. The pre-conference workshops will be led by well-known professionals and international leaders in their field.

The pre-conference workshops are approved both by ISPA and NASP (National Association of School Psychologists) making them, thus, eligible for Continuing Education credit for USA based participants. Other countries may also recognize these workshops for Continuous Professional Development or certification and licensing reasons. See the presenters and the workshop titles below.

There are both morning and afternoon pre-conference workshops, so conference participants can take benefit of two learning opportunities.  

Please note that attending the pre-conference workshops require advance sign-up. ONLY registered participants for the ISPA 2020 conference can take advantage and sign-up for the pre-conference workshops. The sign-up for all optional conference services, including the Pre-Conference Workshops, will be handled online with a one-stop shopping experience through the main conference registration system. Registered conference participants have the flexibility to go back in the registration system to adjust their order by adding or removing optional services in accordance to the organizers’ cancellation policies. 

A Certificate of Completion for each Pre-Conference Workshop will be provided to each registered and paid participant after they complete a brief online workshop assessment survey. A link will be sent to you after the conference.
