Ph.d. Graduate Student Extern (Assessments)
Amira Nahshal is a school psychology Ph.D. candidate at Fordham University, specializing in the psychology of bilingual students. Her passion is providing neuropsychological evaluations and therapeutic services to immigrant and refugee children and their families. The objective of her work is to provide culturally sensitive support to families within their socio-cultural settings.
As an Arabic interpreter at the New York City Department of Education (Committee on Preschool Special Education), she provides translation services to families during psychoeducational assessments, including background and family history sessions, testing sessions, and speech sessions. As part of her current role, she knows how few resources are available to people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Due to this, she has made it her professional goal and mission to help people from these backgrounds and work together with parents to improve treatment outcomes.
