Spotlight on Reva Tankle, Ph.D.

A Seasoned Clinician Who Really "Gets" Special Ed

From time to time, we like to shine a light on a member of our clinical staff whose skills, experience and accomplishments are particularly impressive. Reva Tankle, Ph.D. certainly qualifies!

Having been a licensed, practicing adult neuropsychologist for many years, but seeking more formal, specialized training in the evaluation of children and adolescents, Reva came to NESCA as arguably our most over-qualified post-doctoral fellow ever.

Reva Tankle, Ph.D.
And train she did, hard, with the best: Drs. Ann Helmus, seeing kids with a wide range of learning disabilities, and Nancy Roosa, evaluating children with autism spectrum disorders.

We were thrilled when she joined our permanent staff!

Apart from her mature good judgment and clinical experience, what really sets Reva apart is her savvy in identifying and helping families to obtain the special education services their children need.

In 2004, she trained at the Federation for Children with Special Needs as a Special Needs Advocate. Since then, she has worked with hundreds of families with children with a wide range of disabilities, helping them navigate their way through the process of special education eligibility and accessing necessary services. Reva currently teaches the Federation's Parent Consultant course on "The Use of the Neuropsychological Evaluation in the IEP Process."

Into the mix, throw Reva's long experience working with adults who've suffered traumatic brain injury, and her special interest in, and study of the effects of concussion in children and adolescents, which we are seeing with greater frequency.

Reva Tankle really is the total, and very special package. And she still has availability...
