Thank you for your interest in presenting to school psychologists!

CASP is doing things a little differently this year. We’ll be accepting speaker proposals for all our events – convention, spring institute, and webinars. You can submit as many proposals, and for as many events, as you’d like.

Workshop and miniskills proposals may be submitted for all events Paper and Poster submissions will only be considered for Convention. 

Proposals will go through a review process by our various committees. Selections for Convention are expected to be made by the end of May 2022 and Spring Institute by the end of December 2022. Webinar selections will be made at various times depending on the event date, at which point, submitters will receive an email to confirm whether their proposal has been selected or not. Please note, if you submit your proposal prior to an event date being set, we will contact you to confirm your availability.

Please carefully read the instructions below before submitting a proposal. All proposals must be submitted by March 31, 2022. All proposals must be submitted online using this form. 

Please have the following ready to submit as part of your online application:

  • A descriptive paragraph with 150 words or fewer, PLUS three learning objectives. 
  • One impactful, focused sentence that shares the specific idea, process, or tool participants will be able to apply after your presentation.
  • A one-page summary of your presentation. In this summary, please identify the presentation objectives, specific skills to be taught, and the expected learning outcomes. 
  • A brief (100 words or less) bio for each presenter
  • A headshot for each presenter

Workshops

Workshop presentations are designed to provide intensive skills development for working school psychologists. They should provide participants with best practices, effective solutions and strategies, and quality resources that can be applied to daily practice. Workshop sessions can be either 3 or 6-hours long and typically provide CEUs/CPD for attendees.  

Mini-Skills 

Mini-Skills presentations are designed for working school psychologists to teach participants specific skills, such as research proficiencies, counseling techniques, or specific assessment methods. It is a time to share what you have learned through your own experience – what works for you as a school psychologist. Each session is 1 hour and 20 minutes long, allowing for comprehensive presentations and ample time for attendee questions. 

Papers, Posters, and Panels

Papers address topics relevant to the profession and inform research and/or practice. Each session is 50 minutes long.
Posters are visual presentations scheduled in groups. Poster should be no larger than 4-feet by 4-feet and will be presented on bulletin boards. Do not use tri-fold presentation cardboard. 

Both Paper and Poster presentations are resume-building opportunities for graduate students, professors and working school psychologists. 

Each paper and poster presenter must complete a Convention Registration and pay the associated admission fees. This includes not only the lead presenter, but all co-presenters. Presentations will not be included in the final program if the presenters are not registered for the convention by the early registration deadline. 

Paper & Poster research projects may be considered for the Michael Goodman Memorial Award. For more information, visit casponline.org/awards.

Panel presentations are designed to provide an interactive session on topics relevant and useful to working school psychologists. Panel sessions should be at least 1 hour 20 minutes, no more than 3 hours.  

Webinars
Webinars are a great way to engage working school psychologists on important emerging topics, while allowing them the convenience of learning on their own time, and in their own space. Each webinar should be at least 1 hour, but no more than 3 hours long and typically provide CEUs/CPD for attendees.
