ROBERT HULL, EDS, MED, NCSP

Robert Hull, MA, ED, EDS, MHS, award winning school psychologist, career educator, special education administrator and professor, is an expert in implementing evidence-based practice into practical, easy to implement strategies that lead to desired outcomes.

Robert’s hands-on assistance has helped and inspired thousands of educators who work in the most challenging schools in our nation. His 25 years of experience working with youth and teachers in areas ranging from urban inner cities to impoverished rural counties has led to his recognition by local school systems, state governments, and state legislatures. Robert Hull has a reputation for taking on the biggest challenges in the most difficult school systems. As an administrator at both the system/district and state levels, he implemented reforms in the areas of disproportionality, implementing evidence based practices, and educating traumatized children.

He is also the co-author of CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents (PESI, 2017).

Robert’s style uses humor to instill hope and motivation in order to release the anger and disillusionment that educators working with challenged youth face. A passionate presenter, he creates optimism while making compelling points. Robert’s “get the job done” approach focuses on creating a culture of success where everyone is responsible for leadership and everyone gains from success.
