Dr. Lyudmila Trost is a licensed clinical child psychologist at Jewish Family & Career Services. She conducts comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations assessing strengths and weaknesses in cognitive, academic, and social-emotional domains in children and adolescents. She emphasizes the importance of learning the family's concerns and hopes for testing to get the most out of the evaluation. She thoroughly reviews school records and other documents. She also believes that collaborating with teachers and other school personnel is integral to an evaluation and for young children, possibly visiting the child's school for an observation. She also provides an age-appropriate and interactive child or adolescent feedback as a part of the evaluation process to empower the child/teen to understand their own learning profile.

Lyudmila earned her bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in child development at Appalachian State University in North Carolina. She then earned her master's degree in school psychology and her doctorate in school and clinical child psychology at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology under Yeshiva University in New York City.
