As the district’s School Psychologist, my role ranges from assessment to consultation to intervention. I provide direct support services and interventions to students of all ages. One of my primary duties as a member of the Child Study Team is assessment. I assess students suspected of having a disability as part of the process in determining eligibility for special services. A cognitive battery is administered to obtain a level of intellectual functioning, academic potential, student’s strengths and weaknesses. Social/ emotional assessments are used to obtain data about a student’s emotional and behavioral functioning. It is a collaborative process in which the teachers’ and parents’ perspectives are essential in the assessment process. I also provide consultation service to teachers as a method of establishing interventions for students who are displaying behavioral, emotional, or academic difficulties in a classroom. It is a cooperative process as an effort to promote success in students who are struggling. As part of a direct service to students, I provide school based individual and/ or group counseling. I am a member of the Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS), assist with trauma and crisis, and case manage classified student.
I look forward to working with your children and family. I can be reached at 201-804-6314 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I serve both McKenzie and Faust schools.
