Ah, back to school....how are we all doing? Things are gettin' real, right? No more icebreakers and settling in, it's go time for school psychologists. You start having days at your school site where everything that could go wrong does and you run around putting out a hojillion fires and then you look at the clock, ready for lunch and its 3pm.
That is why all school psychologists neeeeeeeed a survival kit. Now is your chance to get one free! That's right, for just Free-99 you can win this Basket O' Survival!*
What do you get in your Basket O' Survival?
-An autographed copy of my book, The School Psychologist's Survival Guide!
-Pencils (seriously, where do they all go?)
-Peet's Coffee (it's the strongest in the world, I think)
-A bottle of Ibuprofin (you just need this on some days, am I right?)
-Hand sanitizer (for those great moments when a kid waits until halfway through testing to say, "I think I have pink eye/lice/the flu/strep!")
-A pack of trail mix for when it's 2:29 pm and you haven't had lunch yet and you have an IEP meeting in one minute. Easy to snarf down on the go for quick protein.
-Stickers and a reward chart (for the little friends who need a little extra sumthin' sumthin' to get through the Test of Auditory Perceptual Skills or the CTOPP).
