School Psychologist

Rachel Holleran, NCSP

My background is actually as a special education teacher! I received my Bachelor's in special education and became dually certified in special education and elementary education. I was a self-contained teacher in an emotional and behavioral classroom at a middle school in North Carolina. This is where I found the field of school psychology and fell in love with it! I received my Master's degree in New York and have been a school psychologist in Alaska, New York City, and Florida! I have been doing remote teleassessment and therapy for the last year and love it! I work with school teams in Michigan, Maine, Ohio, Maryland, and counting. I've worked with students from early intervention all the way up through twenty-one years old.

About

Rachel

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

Assessments are a wonderful tool! They can help us in identifying any gaps and better guide our method to address them. They help us understand your child as a learner to support us in leveraging more meaningful instructional recommendations and guide intervention and service planning.

What was your path to becoming a provider?

My family has an extensive history of learning differences. This has helped me deeply value that there are many different ways to learn and each individual has their own strengths. It is our role as providers to foster those strengths and improve upon growth areas.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

The traditional form of instruction works for some but not all students. I truly believe that every child has a right to an incredible education and when we leverage tools and an open, strengths-based mindset, we can help our children make great strides and close artificial achievement gaps.
