If you haven’t heard of the School Psyched podcast, you’ve got to check it out. As one of the only other podcasts out there that’s focused on psych testing, we’ve shared many guests and topics of discussion. I’m so fortunate to have the three co-hosts – Rebecca Comizio, Rachael Donnelly, and Eric Elias – on the show with me today for a little crossover episode. You’ll learn all about their journey with School Psyched, and we dive into some of the most common issues in bridging the gap from private practice evals to school services!
