Rachel Fidler, FASP's Student Delegate

The role of the Student Delegate(s) is to serve as a liaison between FASP and the School Psychology students of Florida. The goal is to serve prospective school psychology students by providing information about the different graduate programs throughout Florida, answering questions or concerns about applying for such a program, and addressing any other needs or ideas a student may present. In addition, the student delegate hopes to serve current graduate students by creating open lines of communication so students can share any personal or professional concerns, needs, or ideas related to issues in School Psychology.
