The Graduate Association of School Psychology (GASP) was established at Illinois State University for school psychology trainees. Each year, GASP members participate in:

  • the School Psychology Visitation Days,
  • the doctoral interview day,
  • the annual Intern and Intern Supervisor Workshop,
  • the ISPA and NASP conventions,
  • the orientation program for new trainees,
  • the development of a New Trainee Welcome Packet that is distributed each summer,
  • organizing social events for trainees,
  • raising School Psychology awareness in the community,
  • supplying amenities for the Psychological Services Center and the graduate student and trainee study room,
  • sponsoring a continuing professional development workshop (as a fundraiser to support trainee travel), and
  • many other activities, as suggested by the GASP members.
