Dr. Alan S. Kaufman with Dean James Hennessy, Associate Dean Vincent Alfonso, Rosa A. Hagin Centers Director Dr. Zsuszanna Kiraly, and Dr. Dawn Flanagan (St. Johns University).
On May 13th, Dr. Alan S. Kaufman addressed almost 300 school psychologists and students as keynote speaker at GSE’s 3rd Annual Assessment Conference, “The Role of Contemporary Cognitive Assessment in Intervention Planning.” Kaufman, a clinical professor of psychology at the Yale Child Study Center at the Yale University School of Medicine, is a legend in the field of intelligence testing. Prior to his lecture, Kaufman was presented with the Excellence in Assessment Award by GSE Associate Dean Vincent C. Alfonso. The award (to be named the Alan S. Kaufman award henceforth) will be presented to the keynote speaker at the Assessment Conference at every future conference.
The conference (organized by the Rosa A. Hagin School Consultation and Early Childhood Centers at GSE) also featured Elaine Fletcher-Janzen and Barbara Wendling as speakers, and was sponsored by major sponsors Pearson and Wiley Publishing, as well as various supporting sponsors.
