On January 30th, staffers from the New York State Assembly and Taconic Hills Central School District joined LaSalle staff to learn more about the policy and placement aspects of neuroscience as it relates to youth. Executive Director David Wallace set the stage for LaSalle Trainers Troy Kennedy and Shelley Mareno to deliver a modified Therapeutic Crisis Intervention session. Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi, in attendance, was intrigued by the material during a previous roundtable discussion. Taconic Hills visited due to LaSalle’s ongoing training presence in the community.
