Friday Morning Clinical


The Bi-County collaborative offers selected evaluations that include assessment of social-emotional,
developmental, personality, and executive functioning. In addition, our evaluators perform neuro-
psychological evaluations and risk assessments. These assessments are completed on a referral basis
only with preference given to member districts. Currently, the Bi-County collaborative contracts with the
following clinicians to conduct these assessments for students from member and non-member districts:


Barry Plummer, PhD

Dr. Barry Plummer holds a PhD in psychology from University of Rhode Island and completed a
fellowship in clinical psychology at the Devereux Foundation. Dr. Plummer is licensed as a clinical
psychologist in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Dr. Plummer has extensive experience working in
public school settings, special-education collaboratives, residential treatment facilities, day programs,
and has had an outpatient psychology practice. Additionally, he was on staff at McLean Hospital at
Harvard University and administrated an inpatient adolescent unit at Bradley Hospital. For the past 30
years Dr. Plummer has been a faculty member at Albert Medical School of Brown University in the
Department of Child Psychiatry, teaching and supervising Clinical Psychology Fellows and Child

Craig Murphy, PhD

Dr Craig Murphy is a nationally certified school psychologist. He received his PhD and MS from the
Pennsylvania State University, both in school psychology. Craig worked as a school psychologist in
numerous capacities for fifteen years. During that time, he developed a passion for understanding,
evaluating, and supporting children who demonstrated challenging behaviors and/or fragile emotions.
Craig’s research led to over $3 million in federal grant funds, and he readily assumed the director role
for a three-year project that helped the Newton Public Schools form behavioral support teams and train
hundreds of educators in a therapeutic approach for working with challenging students. Craig currently
works as an Associate Professor at William James College in the School Psychology Department. He
serves as the resident expert for both statistics and research, and also teaches numerous courses
related to assessment and intervention. Craig has a private practice, along with Dr. Nadja Reilly, in
Franklin, MA called the Family and Educational Wellness Center where he conducts comprehensive
psychological and educational evaluations, provides individual and family counseling, and serves as a
consultant to numerous local school districts.
