On December 10, 2009, Dr. Melissa Reeves, chair of the PREPaRE workgroup, presented oral and written testimony on behalf of NASP (National Association of School Psychologists) at a hearing of the Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Disaster Recovery of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. This subcommittee is chaired by Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and it was by her invitation that NASP was included in the event. Senator Landrieu is currently drafting legislation to address the specific needs of children following a major crisis or natural disaster. NASP staff and leaders are working with her office to ensure that the important role that schools play in disaster recovery is explicitly recognized in this legislation.
