Children with complex neurological and behavioral problems receive coordinated care from our physicians, neuropsychologists, and specialty pediatric neurology nurses.
The Pediatric Neuropsychology Unit of the Division of Clinical Behavioral Neuroscience provides a multidisciplinary diagnostic service for children with complex learning and behavioral disorders, both neurological and neurodevelopmental. This Unit serves the five-state area, and for specific diseases, the entire country.
Neuropsychological diagnostic services are provided for children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, learning disabilities, developmental aphasia, autism, and mental retardation. Services are also provided for psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and conduct disturbances especially in children with possible attentional and learning difficulties, and somatoform disorders.
Our neuropsychology service is an integral member of our mulitdisciplinary Autism Spectrum and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Clinic.
