Brief History of LLPA
Paul Donecker
LLPA started out as the Lancaster Lebanon School Psychology Association, an informal group composed of school psychologist located in IU 13. The group started meeting in the mid 70's for lunch in the Lancaster Lebanon (IU 13) area-The Host Town in Lancaster and the General Sutter in Manheim.
Meetings were open to any of the psychologist in the IU and usually drew 10 to 15 people. On occasion we would have informal presentations, usually by one of the psychologist on such topics as mainstreaming, gifted education, the hyperactive student, medication etc.(It is hard for me to remember that in the 70's our field was still in its infancy and the everything was new to the field)
As I remember, staff from the IU/Lancaster city were also invited if the topic was in their field and attendance may have doubled. When there was no presentation we used the time to network and discuss topics of interest among ourselves.
At the time (early 70's) there were few private practicing psychologist in the area. That changed by the end of the decade as the number of licensed psychologist increased and private practices/groups grew. It was about this time that LLPA became established and included psychologist in the private sector
