St. Luke's Children's Neuro and Behavioral Psychology

At St. Luke’s Children’s Neuro and Behavioral Psychology, we work with infants, toddlers, children and adolescents. Our team offers neuropsychological assessment, management, and consultation for children experiencing cognitive, learning, or behavioral difficulties related to a medical or neurological condition such as epilepsy, stroke, or spina bifida.

We also conduct mental health evaluations and provide care for children experiencing learning, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, including neurodevelopmental concerns associated with autism spectrum disorders.

Building on Our Promise to Children

St. Luke

Children's Pavilion - Opening in 2019

Designed to meet the needs of kids, their families, and the people who care for them, this state-of-the-art facility on our downtown Boise campus will more than double our clinical space and improve vital services that keep care close to home. It will bring most of our pediatric specialists and services under one roof, allowing us to provide care more efficiently and easing the burden on parents and kids who will now be able to see several providers in one location in one day.
