What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This is a very unique book. There is nothing else like it that I have come across. It includes all of the necessary information for school psychologists in one place, by integrating the fields of psychology and special education. This book provides a valuable reference for graduate faculty members and students as well as practitioners. —Linda K. Knauss, Widener University

A must-read for any comprehensive School Psychology Law and Ethics course. I could not imagine teaching the course without the support of this book. —Kara E. McGoey, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, School Psychology Program, Kent State University
