3 Program Introduction You are now a graduate student in the Specialist in School Psychology program at the University of Houston-Victoria. Congratulations! You have chosen one of the most outstanding training programs in the region. The UHV School Psychology program is outstanding because it has an excellent faculty from diverse backgrounds with applied school psychology skills and teaching and research skills. Furthermore, the UHV School Psychology faculty is genuinely concerned about your growth, development and success as a professional who will provide competent psychological services to children, families, and schools. Please take the time to get to know the school psychology core faculty because they will play an important role in your education and development into a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP). The UHV psychology faculty expects you to exhibit the hard work and dedication necessary to acquire the skills and knowledge to be a successful school LSSP. We are prepared to work and partner with you to give you the opportunity to become a skilled and professional leader as an LSSP within the public schools of Texas and beyond.

8 Academic Advisement & Orientation One of the most important people in your graduate education is your School Psychology Faculty Advisor. Your advisor is your advocate and confidant. Your advisor recommends and approves your degree plan, monitors your progress, approves course selection, helps you in securing practicum and internship placements, recommends students for graduation and assists you in the job search. As soon as possible after admission to the school psychology degree program, but no later than during the first semester of work, the student should contact his or her assigned school psychology advisor to develop a Degree Plan for the Specialist Degree. During an individual conference, the school psychology faculty advisor will assist the student with selection of courses for the each semester. After the student's degree plan is signed by the advisor and department head and approved by the Graduate School, the student is expected to follow it as the basis for all subsequent enrollments. The degree plan is the primary advisement tool. It is completed early in the student s program, usually in the first semester and provides the listing of courses needed for graduation. The student is responsible for keeping the degree plan updated and for bringing the plan to advisement sessions. If your last name begins with A-J, your faculty advisor is Dr. Hendricker. If your last name begins with K-Z, your faculty advisor is Dr. Viola. Each student is required to consult with his or her school psychology faculty advisor before enrolling in classes for each respective semester. For further information or to schedule an advising session, please contact your faculty advisor. Student Advising Requirement: At the beginning of each academic year, all newly admitted and currently admitted graduate students will be invited to attend a Mandatory Psychology Graduate Studies orientation conducted by the UHV Psychology Faculty. During orientation, students will receive information regarding curriculum and program requirements, and will be introduced to the Psychology faculty members. If a student is unable to attend, he/she is required to contact his/her advisor to obtain important program information. Prerequisites & Program Degree Requirements Students should have evidence of having completed the following undergraduate or graduate courses before entering the school psychology program: statistics, research, and abnormal psychology. A particular course will be waived as a requirement if the student passes a Page 8

9 comprehensive final or its equivalent for the designated course with a grade of C or better. The exam may be taken no more than once for a particular course. Currently, the School Psychology Program is a 66-hour non-terminal degree that leads to a Specialist degree in School Psychology and meets the academic requirements for the Texas Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) credential. With this licensing, you can practice as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology in K-12 public schools in Texas. You are also eligible to apply for the Nationally Certified School Psychologist Credential (long form) from NASP. All students begin and typically follow through with the course of study in the official university catalog of their beginning year in the program.

17 SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY INTERNSHIP CLASS REQUIREMENTS (PSYC 6305) In order to meet the program and licensing and certification requirements, students must complete a school-based internship with a minimum of 1200 clock hours in a public school or school system. As such, students must enroll in PSYC 6305 for two consecutive semesters. Students must apply for internship readiness by completing the School Psychology Internship Application (See Application below). The School Psychology Internship normally takes place across an academic year with a full-time assignment. As is appropriate for their professional skills and training, the program encourages all interns to be paid. The beginning and ending dates of the internship and the intern s working schedule are to be agreed upon by the student, onsite supervisor, and coordinator, but ordinarily encompass one school year. A minimum of 1200 hours must be completed by the end of the spring term and the student s self and supervisor evaluations should also be completed by this time so that grades can be assigned and the student can graduate in May. If the student applies for the LSSP before graduation and all parties agree, he or she may continue to work under supervision for the remainder of that school year. Throughout the internship the channels of communication shall remain open between the university, site, and the student, as the university must remain concerned with not only the student s well-being, but with that of the site and its clients, and with the university itself. Prior to beginning the school psychology internship, the site and site supervisor must be approved by the university supervisor and the Memorandum of Agreement for Internship must be signed by the student, the school site LSSP supervisor, and the University of Houston-Victoria school internship coordinator. According to the Texas Psychologists licensing law, section 22, students are exempt from TSBEP credentials or contract filing but must use a title indicating training status as Specialist in School Psychology Intern while delivering psychological services in the schools. The primary supervisor for the school psychology internship must be licensed as an LSSP in the state of Texas with 3 years of experience and must also be an employee of the school district in which the student is placed. A minimum of 2 hours supervision is required per week (one hour individual supervision with the primary supervisor, plus an additional hour which can be group or individual supervision and can be delegated to on-site personnel with competency in the area being supervised as long as primary supervisor has oversight). The university school psychology internship coordinator may make on-site visits at the end of the semester to lend support and monitor quality if feasible. The university school psychology internship coordinator is not an employee of the internship agency and therefore will not directly supervise student cases. The coordinator is available for support via phone and . Students who have not been enrolled the semester prior to practicum or internship are required to take a pre-practicum/pre-internship competency exam in the areas of (1) assessment, (2) intervention, (3) consultation, and (4) data-based decision making, arranged by the student s school psychology advisor. Please see the School Psychology Internship Handbook for further details. Note the School Psychology Internship Application below. Page 16
