As most of you know, the NASP Annual Convention is on February 10-13, 2016 in New Orleans!
To those who were accepted to present at NASP, congrats!
To those who are not presenting but would like to attend, check out THIS website which has details for pre-registration and travel info.
Are you interested in connecting with a mentor while at the convention?
The NASP Convention offers a mentorship program for graduate students and early career school psychologists to ask questions and learn more about specific areas in which they are interested.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, review the list of potential mentors on the NASP Convention 2016 website and select the person who best matches your interests. Once you have selected your mentor, you both will receive emails with your respective contact information. Contact your mentor to plan a meeting time and location during the convention.

Our first ever ice skating fundraiser event took place on November 14 at Anaheim Rinks, and it was a huge success! Thanks to all who were able to make it. Also, special thanks to Blaise, our fundraising chair and London, our social chair, for organizing this event. We look forward to more CUASP fundraisers like this one! Stay posted!
Hayley Taitz Endowed Fellowship Fundraiser—BASC-3 Training & Happy Hour
On October 14, a BASC-3 training was conducted by the creator himself, Dr. Randy Kamphaus. Dr. Kampaus was generous enough to provide this training at Chapman free of charge and donated all proceeds to the Hayley Taitz Endowed Fellowship. A happy hour was held following the training at Citrus City Grille in the Orange Circle, of which proceeds also went toward the fellowship. All in all, the event raised $4,000 for our dear Hayley’s fund. A giant success!! Thanks to all who made it happen, including Dr. Carriere, Dr. Kampaus, and all who attended the training and happy hour. For more info about the Hayley Taitz Endowed Fellowship, or to make a donation, please visit this website.
On December 9, 2015, Chapman School Psychology Students participated in the annual Autism Walk at Angel Stadium. Our team walked in honor of Hayley Taitz, who was extremely passionate in her work with children with Autism. Hayley's parents, Cheryl and Russell, joined us for the walk as well. What a fun way to honor Hayley's memory and at the same time, show Chapman's support of families in the community affected by autism. Thanks to our historian, Jon Vu, for capturing the day with photos like the one below.
