Council for Exceptional Children
National Association of School Psychologists The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) supports equal access to education and mental health services for all youth within public, charter, and private schools. Aggression and intimidation violate the right of students to receive equal educational opportunities and subsequently reduce academic engaged time. Failure to address bullying in the school setting perpetuates an environment that is unsafe and not supportive of academic achievement, social–emotional development, and mental health.

These voices are shaping the future of our schools in ways that will make long-standing positive changes. Our national bullying prevention campaign, Upstander Alliance, provides free resources and classroom-based tools to students and educators. More than 4,500 schools have used these resources since the campaign began in 2009. Our work with Special Olympics, Unified Strategy, and long-standing partnership with Winston Preparatory Schools continue to prioritize social inclusion, and ensure success for students with disabilities in school and beyond.
