Meet the Team
Ilana Jurkowitz, Ph.D.
As a mother of three children, I understand the stresses and successes that come with parenting. I am empathic of parents' concerns and provide a supportive environment for the entire family as the assessment process progresses. I will make sure to clearly and comprehensively discuss test findings, and provide any follow-up needed after testing is complete. I work closely with families, schools, and outside professionals to make sure that you walk away from this process with a better understanding of your child and a clear road map. I am passionate about ensuring educational and life success for children, adolescents, and young adults, taking an active role in pursuing appropriate accommodations in and out of the classroom.
