Clinical neuropsychology is a sub-specialty of psychology that addresses the relationship between the brain and behavior. Clinical neuropsychologists are responsible for assessing how the brain affects how an individual is able to perform certain daily tasks, such as paying attention or remembering information. Clinical neuropsychologists often have a background in clinical psychology, which allows for them to differentiate cognitive disorders from psychological or psychiatric conditions, or to further understand how different diagnoses may interact and impact a person’s thinking, mood, or behavior. Neuropsychologists are licensed psychologists who have completed a doctorate degree along with an additional post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology and/or rehabilitation psychology.  More information about neuropsychology can be found at

Pediatric neuropsychologists understand how the brain develops, and undergo additional specialized training to address developmental disorders, medical conditions, learning disabilities, and other neurocognitive disorders. They work closely with physicians, educators, parents, and other mental health providers to identify specific strengths and areas of difficulty in children and collaboratively develop goals and means to ensuring a child reaches his or her full potential. Common conditions seen by pediatric neuropsychologists include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Epilepsy
  • Spinal Bifida
  • Prenatal toxin or drug exposure
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Childhood brain tumors or cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Tuberous sclerosis
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Chronic heart and lung conditions
  • Prematurity of birth

ADHD Evaluation

ADHD can often times share common traits with other disorders, including anxiety, depression, auditory processing disorders, or learning disorders. 

Learning Disorder Assessment

The assessment of learning disorders by neuropsychologists differs from school psychologists in that a school psychologist’s job is to determine if a learning disorder exists and if that condition makes the child eligible for additional services and supports. 

Neuropsychological Assessment

Neuropsychological assessment is a sub-specialty of psychology and is a field that requires additional training, education, and supervision beyond that of a clinical psychologist.
