Through fundraising, the School Psychology Association Network (SPAN) has contributed over $1,500 for Autism Speaks. Members of SPAN and the Educational and School Psychology Department will be participating in the ninth annual Autism Speaks U 5K Race/3K Walk at Penn State University on Saturday, April 5, 2014, starting at noon. Donate to the team and help IUP School Psychology members exceed their goal.

Every 11 minutes, a child is diagnosed with autism. College students, friends, family members, and neighbors are all working hard to change the future for those living with autism spectrum disorders. Your generous contribution will help Autism Speaks advance their efforts so families everywhere can finally receive the attention, answers, and support they deserve.

SPAN members participate in a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year to support their travels to local and national conferences. These fundraisers are also used to give back to the local community through donations to organizations that benefit children.

The purpose of SPAN is to facilitate networking among educational and school psychology graduate students and professionals in the field; to promote scholarship and enthusiasm for the field among students; to encourage one another, professionally and personally, through collaborative efforts; and to increase awareness of the fields of educational and school psychology on campus and within the larger community.
