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 provides a supportive environment for the entire family as the assessment process progresses.   I will make sure to support you through the assessment process, 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.
