Arthur H. Swisher, Jr. PhD » Welcome

Welcome

Hello!

I am Dr. Arthur Swisher and I am a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) for Brownsboro ISD. In addition to holding the LSSP credential for the State of Texas, I am also a Licensed Psychologist. This is my 22nd year working in Texas public schools, and second with Brownsboro ISD. I look forward to another year in the district!

Probably the questions I get most frequently are what is an LSSP and what do school psychology professionals do. I have provided a couple of links below that will help provide these answers. Every school district is a little different, but the information included should help.

What is a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP)?

Here is to a great 2018-19 school year!
