COMMENTS
I am a contract psychologist at the Ohio School for the Deaf. In that capacity, I work on the MFE team, which includes me as the psyhcologist, an MFE coordinator, our receptionist, a school nurse, a school audioloigst, a speech and langauge pathologist, an educational specialist, and an ASL specialist; an OT joins our team on an as-needed basis. We provide educational evaluations (I complete the psychological component) for children pre-school to high school (up to age 22) in the state of Ohio. In my private practice, I conduct psycholgical evalutions of deaf and hard of hearing chidlren and adults. While I have some sign ability, I find it prduent, if not necessary, to employ the use of an interpreter in conducting evaluations in my private practice. I also work at Twin Valley Behavioral Healthcare, an inpatient psychiatric hospital operated by the Ohio Department of Mental Health. TVBH has an identified "deaf unit," although at any given time there may be no deaf/hoh patients on the unit; rarely has there been more than 3 on the unit which houses 24-26 patients. I responded to the above questions in my capacity as a contract psychologist for the Ohio School for the Deaf, but have shared my other employment responsibilities here in these comments for a fuller picture---the questions asked above would, obviously, be answered differently depending on if I was responding in my capacity as a contractor for OSD, a private practitioner, or an employee at the hospital. Insomuch that my responses are reflective of my responsibilities at the Ohio School for the Deaf, it would be nice if I could view what would be published before having it published so that I can assure the accuracy of the information and have it reviewed by the school's administration. Sincerely, Bob Stinson, Psy.D. Psychologist
