Background: 

As of December 20, 2010, The National Association of School Neuropsychologists™  (NASN-Psychologists) was established.  The intention of the newly created National Association of School Neuropsychologists™ is to form an official group of individuals that have expertise in school neuropsychology and neuropsychological issues.   This group of licensed school psychologists have specialized training and/or knowledge about how to apply many of the concepts of neuroscience within the school environment. 

The second intention of this group of experts is to offer certification to applicants who meet specific criteria, which will be detailed at a later date.  The certification being offered is called, Nationally Certified School Neuropsychologist™.   Another level of certification is called Certified School Neuropsychologist™
