Meredith Gleason, MS, LEP
"Patients can expect me to be a psychologist who is compassionate and an empathetic listener, in addition to having a thorough understanding of common diagnoses that impact student learning such as ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, and Dyslexia. I am passionate about conducting in-depth and comprehensive psychoeducational assessments to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to provide families with answers to their questions about how and why their child may be struggling to learn. Additionally, I have a strong working knowledge of how to translate psychoeducational assessment results to an educational setting that supports learning differences. I am also proficient in a variety of counseling tools and curriculums which help children and adolescents identify triggers, feelings and coping strategies. My team-based approach of working with the patient, family, and educators increases the generalization of self-regulation strategies across the home and school environment. I look forward to being on your child’s team!"
I am a uniquely qualified provider because I have 15 years of educational experience as a teacher and as a psychologist in the schools, in addition to being a parent myself. My experience in education has been an asset in identifying students’ individual learning needs and appropriate interventions. My extensive counseling experience and specific training in trauma-informed care have crafted my ability to connect with children, increase their self-esteem, and help them develop resilience. In addition, I am passionate about supporting students with executive functioning deficits through motivational counseling and support.
