OSSINING, N.Y. -- Ossining's Special Education Parent Teacher Organization is set to present a new program on struggling students on Tuesday, Jan. 14.
"Struggling Student: How Independent Evaluations Can Help" with Dr. Emily Lantz will start at 7 p.m. at the Roosevelt School Cafeteria, 190 Croton Ave. in Ossining.
"This presentation will review what to expect during the independent neuro-psychological evaluation," representatives said. "It will help parents understand how the testing assists with diagnostic clarity between learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autistic spectrum disorders and other developmental or acquired brain disorders."
Lantz has clinical experience evaluating and treating children and adults with a wide variety of psychological and cognitive disorders. She was trained as a licensed clinical psychologist at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, part of Yeshiva University, where she did extensive training in different therapeutic modalities including psycho-dynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, and family systems therapy.
The event is co-sponsored by the National Autism Association New York Metro Chapter.
