Dr. Emily McKenna-Mattson

Hello and welcome to my staff page!  I provide school psychology services for the Vanguard Transition Center at The Vanguard School.  I completed my B.A. in Psychology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and my doctorate in School Psychology at Temple University.  This is my fifth year working at The Vanguard School and my 19th year working as a certified school psychologist in Pennsylvania.  Upon completing my doctoral degree, I worked for the Delaware County Intermediate Unit and Upper Darby School District.  I have also worked as a behavior specialist consultant at Devereux Children’s Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Services.  I have participated in assessment research for the standardization of cognitive assessments and have experience teaching as an adjunct faculty member at Arizona State University.
