Program Policies

Attendance Policy
In order to receive the CE/CPD Credits from KIDS, Inc. at the end of the program, students must document their full attendance in the program. The go-to-meeting software creates an attendance sheet for each session. If you miss a live Webinar, you need to listen to the recorded session at a later date. The go-to-meeting software also keeps a list of those participants who accessed the recorded sessions.

Professional Liability Insurance Policy
Students in the School Neuropsychology Post-Graduate Training Program must carry a professional liability insurance policy since they work with children and their families.

NASP members have access to professional liability insurance from two top providers. The policies, for both school-based and private practitioners, provide coverage difficult to obtain elsewhere. Rates vary by state, but the savings are significant compared to commercial policies.
  • Forrest T. Jones & Company can be reached at (800) 265-9366 and offers discounted professional liability, life, and health insurance to NASP members.
  • American Professional Agency can be reached at (800) 421-6694 and offers discounted professional liability insurance for NASP members.
APA members have access to professional liability insurance through The Trust Sponsored Professional Liability Insurance Program.

If students are not members of APA or NASP, they should seek out a professional liability insurance policy on their own.

Copyrighted Lecture Content
The lecture materials are copyrighted by KIDS. Inc. or individual authors. You must obtain permission from KIDS, Inc. if you want to use any of the copywritten materials outside of class. We are generally pretty liberal with our permissions to use some of the lecture content for educational inservice trainings in your school systems or in local or state association meetings. Please ask before you use the material. Permissions should be directed to Dr. Dan Miller, Program Director.

Passing the Course Requirements
In order to pass the course, you must:
  • Attend the monthly sessions or listen to all recorded sessions.
  • Submit three school neuropsychological case studies to your instructor. As part of the active supervision you will receive, you will be asked to make changes to your reports as you learn the conceptual model. The final edits copies of these three reports are what should be submitted to the instructor along with the parental permission slip stapled to the top of each report.
  • Documentation of 500 hours of field-based practical experience (see the separate policy on what constitutes field-based experience.
  • Obtain a passing score on the 200 item Final Exam. In order to pass the course, you must achieve a minimum score of 75% of the items correct. In order to pass the test for the purposes of becoming a Diplomate in School Neuropsychology from the American Board of School Neuropsychology, you must achieve a minimum score of 80% of the items correct.
  • Successfully complete the final oral examination based on your final case study.
What Constitutes Field-Based Practicum Hours?
Here is a sample of activities that can be logged:
  • Your readings for class.
  • As you learn more about history taking, record review, and how to use new assessment instruments any or all of these activities will count.
  • Any related CEU workshops that you attend that relate to school neuropsychology.
  • Any consultations that you do with parents and teachers related to neuropsychological principles.
  • Your studying for the final exam.
  • Your report writing and testing time for your case studies.
What if I Do Not Complete the Course Requirements in the 10 months?
If the student does not complete the course requirements within the first year of the program, the student has the option of extending their completion of the course up to one year. However, there are some caveats to this extension. Due to the cost of continued of continued access to the instructor anyone who needs to continue in the program for another year will be required to pay an additional $2,500 fee. If the student just needs a month or two to finish up their final case study or to accumulate the total practicum hours, the student may not be subject to any additional course fees. This decision will be at the discretion of the Program Director. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the course instructor and program director if she/he will not be finishing the course by the end of the first year. If the student cannot finish the program in a two year time period, they must re-enroll in the course at a later time and pay the full tuition.

Procedures for Handling Student Complaints/Grievances
All complaints are handled in a private, individual manner between the participants who are involved in the compliant. Students in the program are first encouraged to discuss their concern(s) with their immediate clinical supervisor. If resolution of the complaint is not accomplished at that level, the complainant is expected to bring their concerns to the program director who will hear the concerns and mediate the discussion is an open and impartial manner. All decisions made by the program director are final.
