Merridee Michelsen, Ph. D. is currently Assistant Headmaster -- Internal Affairs and Director of Academics at Brandon Hall School.   In our opinion at FamilyLight, she is also one of the leading experts on the topic of slow processing, a pet concern at FamilyLight.   

Prior to her service at Brandon Hall School, she was the founder of the Chesapeake Learning Center at West Nottingham Academy, and also served on the faculty of Christchurch School.  

Merridee has graciously contributed our inaugural article in our online symposium on slow processing.

Disclaimer: No  program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation.  When we express our level of confidence in a school or program or product, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree.  When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source.  We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance.  It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines.  Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
