Felix Festa Middle School

Welcome to my Website!

My name is Diane Benjamin and I have the pleasure of working with students from two special programs here at Felix Festa Middle School; the Prescriptive Education Program and the Spirit program. I have a Doctorate from Teachers College, Columbia University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Brooklyn College. I am a licensed Psychologist in NYS as well as a certified School Psychologist.  I have been working as a School Psychologist since 1997 and have worked with special education students who have had various disabilities including hearing impairment, behavioral and emotional disabilities (e.g., ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Mood Disorders), learning disabilities, communication disorders, and developmental delays.   

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Please click on Psychological Services to see what I do as well as to obtain important information about childhood challenges. Looking forward to working with your child!
