Dr. Patricio Romero received his doctoral degree in school psychology with the bilingual (Spanish) extension at St. John’s University. Currently, he holds a position as a practicing school psychologist in an urban high school in Long Island.

As the project associate for the Woodcock-Munoz Foundation Cuba Outreach Project, he has the responsibilities to conduct workshops to the prominent university professors and psychometric examiners from The University of Habana and Cátedra de Estudios sobre Discapacidad (Center of the Studies of Disabilities). At these workshops, participants were provided with information about the purposes and uses of the assessment materials as well as training in the CHC theory of intelligence. The overarching goal of the project is to train the professors from various universities in Cuba to increase their knowledge of different assessment tools in order for them to incorporate it in their classes and fieldwork.

He also works as the Project Coordinator for the “Multiculturalism Matters” grant received by Emilia Lopez at Queens College- City University of New York CUNY. His responsibilities are to train school psychology graduate students at the specialist level to obtain knowledge and skills to work with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) children and youth at risk for referrals to special education or receiving special education services, including English language learners (ELLs).

His knowledge and experiences in the areas of multicultural issues and assessments ensures that the clients will obtain a nondiscriminatory, culturally sound evaluation in the most comprehensive manner possible.
