Northeastern University’s Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in School Psychology is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The overarching purpose of the program is to develop highly competent school psychologists. Some students also choose to concentrate in applied behavior analysis or concurrently enroll in the Graduate Certificate in Early Intervention. The option to concurrently enroll in early intervention training is designed to prepare school psychologists to work with infants and toddlers and their families in community and related agencies, on interdisciplinary teams, and on the transition to school. The applied behavior analysis concentration is designed to prepare school psychologists to address the learning and behavioral needs of children and adolescents with challenging behaviors in school, home, and community settings, including children with autism spectrum disorders.
