Neuropsychology

|

Neuropsychologists study how people with brain disorders behave, learn, remember and think. Sorting psychological symptoms from neurological symptoms can help doctors make the right diagnosis. In addition, neuropsychologists can:

  • Help your child follow the instructions given in treatment plans
  • Suggest strategies for you and others who work with your child
  • Provide referrals for evaluation and care of mental or behavioral disorders
