Licensed Educational Psychologist and School Psychologist

Martin Spring, Ph.D.

I'm a licensed educational psychologist with a doctorate in Educational Psychology from the University of California, Riverside. I have worked as a teacher, school counselor, school psychologist, and school administrator both in K-12 and college settings. I supervised Disability/Access Services, among other departments, at two colleges. I have also taught graduate courses in educational psychology at UC Riverside, UC San Diego, and California State University, San Bernardino. Although I have worked with and assessed students from preschool through college age, I have worked for the last eight years as a school psychologist in a K-6 setting.

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I started as a high school teacher, became a high school counselor, then a school psychologist and then an administrator in K-12 and college. I returned to school psychology after retiring from college work.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

Learning and school should be as fun and interesting as possible. Unfortunately, not all children find it this way. Helping kids find the joy and pride in learning is a real treat.

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment (or counseling/therapy)?

Assessment allows families to discover or confirm the learning strengths and weaknesses of their child. Once these are known, a plan for academic and strategy instruction can be implemented along with accommodations which will allow their child to be a more effective, happy, and engaged learner.
