Women in the Spotlight Interview
by Precise Publishing, September 2016
Welcome to our practice. I am Dr. Liz Matheis, but people typically call me Dr. Liz. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and certified school psychologist. In my practice, we specialize in working with children, adolescents and young adults with special needs and their families.
Dr Liz Matheis
After 10 years of being at Fairleigh Dickinson University, I earned my B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I've served on the Child Study Team as a School Psychologist and Coordinator. I was responsible for evaluations for determining eligibility, prepared IEPs and met with parents and staff to determine special education program and related services based on the NJ Special Education Law.
I also served as a Psychologist and head of the Counseling Services Department at a local private school for children on the autistic spectrum.
Prior to that, I worked with college students at the FDU Regional Center for Students with Learning Disabilities. I coached students who had graduated high school and required additional academic support through a 504 Accommodation Plan.
On a personal note, I am a mother of 3 children (2 boys and 1 little lady). Just as you are, I am also running around and enjoying the ups and down of parenthood. When I have leisure time, I enjoy drinking (dry red) wine, making jewelry and crafting.
I look forward to working with you and your family!
