Psychological & Educational
I've conducted thousands of evaluations of children, adolescents, and adults in my dual roles as a certified school psychologist and clinician. I offer rigorous and comprehensive examinations of a range of presenting concerns (e.g., learning disorders & intellectual disabilities; gifted & talented; attention, memory & executive functioning; Autism Spectrum Disorders [ASD], etc.), in order to guide diagnosis and treatment, program development, and educational planning.
I employ the most reliable, valid, and well-researched measures in all domains of functioning (such as IQ and educational testing, evaluations of mood & personality, adaptive behavioral assessments, etc.).
My psychological evaluations and independent educational evaluations (IEE) are informed by my extensive knowledge of New York State educational regulations and special education law, which I've gathered as a member and chairperson of the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) and Committee on Special Education (CSE) meetings for 23 years.
