Interventions

Other than counseling, what interventions can an LEP do?

LEPs can provide direct interventions and/or design interventions that they think will be best for their clients.  Many LEPs enjoy providing individual or group counseling to students.  Interventions can also include executive skill coaching, academic intervention and more.

Interventions is the topic of conversation in our LEP Monthly Q&A in December.  Each month we tackle a specific topic as well as answer YOUR questions about being an LEP.  We meet on the third Thursday of each month from 4:30-5:30 and record all calls in case you are unable to attend live.  Join today and receive immediate access to the replays from June through November.

Interested?  Join us for only $40 for the entire 2021-2022 school year. LINKj: https://app.ruzuku.com/courses/54409/about

The LEP’s Scope of Practice

The LEP exam wanted to make sure that we understood the scope of practice for LEPs.  There is also a personal scope of practice.  For example, an LEP can diagnose bipolar disorder.  But, should you?  Have you personally had any training in diagnosing Bipolar Disorder?  An LEP can provide direct academic interventions.  But should you?  Have you personally had any training?

This is why we created the Scope of Practice online course.  Sign up today and receive immediate access to content that covers what an LEP can do other than IEEs. LINK: https://empowerlep.com/online-classes/

Need a job?

SF Mind Matters is seeking Licensed Psychologists or Licensed Educational Psychologists who are passionate about assessment for children, adolescents and/or young adults.

Located in San Francisco (near Glen Park), SF Mind Matters offers you the benefits of being in private practice, with the support and collegiality of a clinic. We are a team of life-long learners, who understand that being helpful to our clients means continuing to seek out opportunities to grow as professionals. Psychologists choose their caseload and set most of their own work hours, but collaborate with each other in an effort to improve their skills and knowledge.

We mentor early career Psychologists and those newer to testing. We provide experienced Testing Psychologists with a supportive and collegial private practice setting without the administrative burdens of solo practice. By the end of their first year with Mind Matters, our clinicians typically earn between $3000-$6,000 per month for completing 1-2 evaluations. (Each evaluation usually takes 25-30 hours to complete). We also offer a benefits package.

Experience and training in assessing attention, learning and social-emotional challenges is required. Ideally candidates would also have strong interest and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Autism assessments
  • Giftedness/2E assessments
  • Developmental assessments for preschool aged children
  • College/young adult assessments
