Pediatric neuropsychology deals with the relationship between children’s learning and behavior as it relates to their brain structure and systems. Our training in school neuropsychology allows us to take findings and make recommendations for school and community-based accommodations and supports. Learning disabilities, or other brain-based conditions, do not mean that your child is incapable of learning, gaining knowledge, or obtaining skills; instead it means that different methods of teaching or therapies must be utilized to help build skills and promote growth.
Pediatric neuropsychologists are licensed psychologists who have developed expertise in how the development of a child’s brain relates to, and impacts, their learning, behavior, and social-emotional development. They evaluate clients using a variety of assessment techniques, analyze test results, and devise targeted educational or treatments plans.
