How can an educational consultation benefit my child?
As a practicing Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) in the public school, I am well trained in research based interventions and techniques that demonstrate success in the classroom. I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) at the Master's level and a member of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) which holds an LSSP to the highest standard. I can assist you and your child in navigating the Special Education or 504 process. I can provide tailored intervention ideas for your child based on previous evaluations provided in the school or by an outside treatment provider. I have found in my practice that parents often feel overwhelmed with the educational and evaluation process. They do not understand the technical terms used in meetings or evaluations. I can help assist you, your family, and/or child in understanding their personal strengths and weaknesses as well as how to make effective educational changes. I am also happy to consult with school staff members to assist you in meeting intervention needs.
Do you provide psychoeducational and psychological evaluations?
I provide evaluations only in the school setting at this time. However, I am happy to assist you in reviewing a completed evaluation and make suggestions on further evaluation needs.
