    Today we held this year's first Speaker Series event, "Neuropsychological and Psychological Testing: Guidance for parents and professionals" give by Dr. David Stein, Psy.D. of New England Neurodevelopment, LLC.

    This presentation is to guide families and professionals through the process of neuropsychological and psychological testing from when adults are first concerned about a child, through the testing process itself, and review the expected outcomes from an assessment. The presentation will focus on practical guidance as to how to engage in an assessment and to support children and families using evidence-based methods after testing is completed.

    We are excited to announce the parent volunteers for the PIE Executive Committee, for the next two years; Stacey Suckerman (high school parent), Rachel Clouse, (continued member and high school parent) and Timothy Flood (high school parent). This year, because of the complications of COVID, fewer parents have been able to volunteer their time. Therefore, we have decided to run a “mini PIE” committee. This group will engage in the same work that PIE usually does, just in the more limited framework of what COVID allows. It will include the two Principals, Jen Thorell and Amy Davis, as LPS representatives as well as the 3 parents mentioned above.

    We are incredibly appreciative of the efforts, team work, thoughtfulness and positivity of the outgoing PIE Executive Committee; Nikki McCay, Tracey McElroy, Genie Peterson, and Susan McConathy. They were the pioneers of this committee and have been a pleasure to work with. LPS thanks you for volunteering your time to bring our students and families together for fun events, fundraising and supporting our field trips!
