BC School Psychology Advocacy

Recent and upcoming regulatory changes affecting the field of School Psychology could have important and lasting effects on children and youth, families, schools, and communities. The changes add barriers to the profession and to service delivery. The purpose of this advocacy is to answer the call for feedback regarding the CPBC's proposed Bylaws
