At St. Luke's Children's Neuro and Behavioral Psychology, our team of child psychologists, pediatric psychologists, and pediatric neuropsychologists work with infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents with various medical and behavioral health conditions. Our team offers comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessment, management, and consultation for children and adolescents experiencing learning, emotional, social, and/or behavioral difficulties.
Our child psychologists conduct evaluations to assist in the diagnosis and management of various behavioral health conditions, including learning disability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our pediatric neuropsychologists provide evaluations to assist in understanding the impact of a child's medical condition on neurocognitive and social emotional functioning. Our pediatric psychologists work with children and adolescents to manage chronic conditions, decrease pain, and improve functioning.
