The New Hampshire Association of School Psychologists establishes goals to direct our course every three to five years. During the strategic planning process we reflect upon our profession, our association, and the concerns facing children, families, and schools. This process is made rich by the ideas, vision, and creativity of NHASP members and representatives from other arenas who share our interest in the success and well-being of all children.
Formal opportunities to work collaboratively with our colleagues and the larger community dedicated to children's success point our way forward while enhancing our vision and renewing our strength.
The New Hampshire Association of School Psychologists in the 21st century will be a vibrant association, supporting its members in their commitment to fostering strong children, schools and families in New Hampshire. NHASP members are united in advocacy for children. We believe that each child in New Hampshire has the right:
