FRANCES LAI

Licensed Educational Psychologist/School Psychologist

I have been a school psychologist since 2007. I enjoy fostering resilience in children by being their cheerleader in school and providing guidance and care. I have worked with children and youth from preschool to high school in providing consultations to parents, teachers, and counselors, as well as conducting special education assessments.

 

As a school psychologist, I provide consultation and collaboration with staff and families to support student needs. Wearing multiple hats at school, I have an in-depth understanding of the services available and know how to help you navigate the system, especially the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. As a licensed educational psychologist, I bring in additional expertise in assessments, consultation on learning differences, promote emotional development and offer EQ classes to children and families. 

I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking Mandarin Chinese. I contract with local school districts when they need a Mandarin bilingual school psychologist, and I regularly perform bilingual assessments with Chinese-speaking English language learners.
