ADA position at U.Va.

Hi Everyone,

Since this position oversees academic accommodations for students with disabilities at U.Va., I'd love to have someone disability-centric apply.
It does require a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology.

More info is on the Jobs@UVA site under posting #0609336.



P.S. Yes, we hope that someday disability services will be outside of the health system, sigh.



The University of Virginia's Department of Student Health seeks a doctoral level clinical psychologist to serve as Director of its Learning Needs and Evaluation Center (LNEC). The Director oversees the daily operations of the Learning Needs and Evaluation Center (LNEC) which is the program responsible for helping to identify students with learning and attentional disorders as well as determining eligibility and implementing academic accommodations for students with disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Director of LNEC has supervisory responsibility for 7.5 FTE staff. The Director also oversees the assessment training and supervision provided to psychological interns from Counseling and Psychological Services' APA-accredited internship.

The Director will have thorough knowledge of the issues pertaining to implementation of disability accommodations, ADA compliance, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Director should have extensive experience in administering and interpreting psychometric assessment measures relevant to the diagnosis of learning, attentional, and emotionally-based conditions. The Director will also have knowledge of DSM-IV differential diagnostic criteria and be able to assess the impact of learning and physical disabilities on social and emotional functioning. The position includes the opportunity to provide a limited amount of psychotherapy to LNEC patients according to the successful candidate's experience and career goals. Understanding of diversity issues will be important to all aspects of this position.

The Director should hold a doctoral degree from an APA-approved psychology program and have completed an APA-accredited internship. Specialty training in psychological and neuropsychological assessment is preferred. Licensure or license-eligibility in the state of Virginia is required.

Application Procedures: Interested candidates should apply online at (Jobs@UVA).

Review of applications will begin February 22, 2012, however the position will remain open until filled.
