Project SUPERB (Scholars Using Psychology and Education to Reach Bilinguals) was a Texas State University grant-funded initiative to provide more and better-qualified bilingual (Spanish-English) school psychologists to serve the growing population of Spanish-speaking children. This project added a training and certification track in bilingual school psychology to the existing National Association of School Psychologists-approved program at Texas State. We recruited, prepared and supported scholars in specialized course work, supervised bilingual field experiences (practicum and internship) at our partner sites, and language/cultural immersion experiences to promote multicultural awareness and build professional Spanish vocabulary in the areas of education and psychology. The first Llano Grande immersion experience in May 2016.
Scholars graduated with a 69-hour specialist degree in school psychology (SSP) and a certificate in bilingual school psychology. Additionally, they were eligible for national certification and state licensure to practice in public schools.
We admitted the 3rd and final Project SUPERB grant-funded cohort who will begin the program this fall 2016 semester.
We will continue offering the bilingual school psychology training and certification track. Grant funded financial support will not be offered for new students. We hope to secure more funding to support scholars in the future.
