Our providers have experience where kids spend most of their day – at school! Dr. Oppenheimer is a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) and is able to perform psychoeducational evaluations for both private and public school placement and subsequent recommendations and accommodations. From gifted and talented evaluations to potential learning differences, understanding your child’s unique learning profile can help teachers and staff better understand your child, and increase their chance of success. Our psychologists also can use their experience with behavioral principles and the understanding of the functions of behaviors to guide Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA) that help school and staff support teams understand the “why” of certain behaviors, and what can be done in response, to help create a positive and strengths based Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP).
Our providers can also attend ARD or IEP meetings, and help guide through transitions from preschool to elementary, elementary to middle, middle to high, and transitioning through adulthood.
Dr. Oppenheimer has worked in public schools to provide psychoeducational evaluation and intervention services. This experience allows Dr. Oppenheimer to help you work with the school in a collaborative manner, to provide services necessary to optimizing your child’s functioning. School supports and services for post high-school and college transition services options are available as well. You may request Dr. Oppenheimer as the provider for an Independent Examiner Evaluation (IEE) through your school district.
