So it is not unusual for school psych PHDs to have a varied scope of practice.
I would be interested in seeing that data.
I poked around a bit more and found data from 2010 NASP Membership Study
, which Curtis also did, and it also matches up with the Curtis et al. (2004) data I cited. The survey did not specifically carve out doctoral-level clinicians (that I could see at a quick glance), so that is a definite limiting factor:
Public Schools: 83.7%
Private Schools: 6.4%
Faith-Based Schools: 2.6%
Independent Practice: 3.5%
State Department: 0.6%
Note: >100% because multiple choices possible
