Nationally Certified School Neuropsychologist™
As of December 20, 2010, The National Association of School Neuropsychologists™ (NASN-Psychologists) was established.

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™
