Lauren Dwyer, PsyD, NCSP
Welcome! My name is Dr. Dwyer and I am one of the School Psychologists at Springhurst Elementary School. I work primarily with third, fourth and fifth grade students. Some of my responsibilities include: individual/group counseling and social skills for IEP/504 mandated and non-mandated students, district-wide neuropsychological/psychological testing, functional behavior assessment and behavior management, crisis intervention and consultation with parents and teachers. I attend and occasionally chair special education meetings. I am also a chairperson of the Child Study Team, overseeing Response to Intervention for third through fifth grade students. One of my favorite responsibilities is hosting alternate recess programs for all upper grade students, including: Lego groups, G.I.R.L.S. group, Inclusion activities with the S.O.S. program and themed book clubs. I am fortunate enough to supervise doctoral level interns from the local universities and attend local meetings with fellow psychologists from neighboring districts.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. I am more than happy to assist you!
