"You guys are a new school but your experience and the love for the students are not. You guys are in the right field. You guys are impacting our children's lives and families in such beautiful way."
- Gilda Bates
"To be honest with you, I haven't had a worry or care in the world about Mikey's safety since he started at PVP."
- Rachel Darr
"My husband was just telling me how much he has seen an improvement in Wendy's behavior. She doesn't seem angry with herself, she seems content with herself, kind of like comfortable with herself, like she's going to be ok knowing she has everyone's support.  She will have difficult days I'm sure but hopefully less aggressive but she will know she will always have  our love, I am cherishing these days and more to come, thanks to you and all the staff."
- Rosa Soto
"My son had been to different Non Public Schools but nothing compared to Port View. We finally found the right and great  school for him. We feel at peace now sending him to school knowing that people will take care of him and able to handle his behaviors. We are so grateful because of this."
- Veronica Barin

Our well rounded multidisciplinary team includes a School Psychologist, who is able to complete any psychoeducational assessments that may be required, whether as part of a triennial IEP or when we wish to develop a more complete picture of the learning style of students who are new to our program.


Understanding how our students distinctively process information allows us to maximize their potential by tailoring our educational program so that each student is taught in the way that they learn best.


Our School Psychologist utilizes a variety of tools, including verbal and nonverbal measures and parent rating scales to ensure that we have a complete picture of our students that incorporate their functioning at home and in the community.


Because our School Psychologist is a familiar face on campus, the rapport that has already been developed can be harnessed to ensure that students perform to the best of their ability and educational decisions are made with the most accurate data possible.


Additionally, having a School Psychologist on site allows unfettered access to our students across settings, creating opportunities for frequent observations during structured and unstructured activities and allowing for a greater level of ecological validity throughout the assessment process.
Perhaps most importantly, allowing our School Psychologist to assess our students gives us an opportunity to ensure that further consultation regarding student learning is available and recommendations for student growth are adhered to across school settings.
