Individual counseling services are available when social, emotional, behavioral, or academic concerns are noticed. An evidence based treatment plan is followed for various issues including Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Self-Confidence, etc.
Family involvement in addressing and making positive change is necessary. Services are offered to children from childhood (5 years) to young adulthood (21 years).
Contract School Psychology/Independent Educational Evaluations(IEE)
Anchor EEC is available to provide psycho-educational evaluations for school districts who are not fully staffed or need support with their assessment loads. As an independent contractor, I can provide independent evaluations for the school when requested by the parent. These evaluations may cover a variety of educational and developmental conditions, such as Preschool Evaluations, Developmental Delays, Specific Learning Disabilities, Other Health Impairment, Serious Emotional Disability, etc. Evaluation reports will include interventions for both the home and school environments to aid in finding success within the academic environment.
Parent & Child Advocate
For families who are enrolled in public school, I can provide feedback, advice, and advocacy services. Receiving letters or notifications from schools regarding your child’s social, emotional, or behavioral performances can be confusing and frustrating. I can help interpret and navigate the referral and end result. I have experience and understanding of current IDEA and 504 criteria for qualification and services.
When you feel the school is not listening to your concerns, I can help you present or explain the frustration you are experiencing to the school. My years of experience, 15 years in the public school setting as a School Psychologist and 2 years in a classroom, allow me to provide a direct and honest outlook. I have an in-depth understanding of state and federal guidelines and laws that address the services that are available and should be provided through the public school system.
