Training School Psychologists to Provide Multi-level Interventions for Non-Responders (MINRS)
MINRS helps recruit, prepare and graduate high quality school psychologists
MINRS offers classroom instruction and field experiences.
The Department of Counseling and Psychology’s School Psychology program received the MINRS grant.
Graduate students who participate in MINRS receive the following:
- $6925/year stipend
- $300/semester for books and intervention material
- $300 for a flight to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) conference
- $600 for NASP conference registration, per diem, and hotel
For each year that students receive MINRS funding, students must work two years in populations where 51% of the students have disabilities.
How to get involved: You must apply with Dr. Stephen Truscott.
- Recruit, prepare and graduate high quality school psychologists
- Recruit candidates from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented based on:
- national origin
- Provide effective behavioral and mental health services to diverse high-need students who are not responding to current instruction and interventions
How We’ll Do It
- Provide classroom instruction and field-based experiences that result in competence to provide:
- We’ll provide support for individual high–need students with disabilities who need targeted behavioral intervention
- We’ll provide support using data-based individualization and evidence-based mental health interventions.
- We’ll provide class-wide and group interventions that facilitate and support positive outcomes for high-need students receiving targeted individualized interventions and their peers.
- We’ll provide professional development and consultative support for special and general education teachers as they implement data-based individualization and evidence-supported interventions with students in their classrooms.
We hope to provide…
- support for individual high–need students with disabilities. These students need specific behavioral intervention.
- support using proven individual intervention.
- support using proven mental health interventions.
- support the use of class-wide and group interventions.
- support positive outcomes for high-need students.
- support special and general education teachers’ professional development and advisement.
- support students with proven individual help and interventions.
