Pediatric Psychology and Neuropsychology
Pediatric Psychology and Neuropsychology concentrates services in two primary areas.
Pediatric Psychology provides specialized assessment and intervention services that focus on the relationship between children’s cognitive, social, and emotional functioning and physical health, typically for children with co-occurring medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes, sickle cell disease).
Pediatric Neuropsychology performs specialized evaluations for children and adolescents with a range of medical and neurological disorders that impact thinking or behavior (e.g., brain tumors, epilepsy, seizure disorders, traumatic brain injury).
Faculty members engage in a diverse range of research activities. Several faculty members are Principal Investigators in the Center for Biobehavioral Health of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and have received funding from the National Institutes of Health for their research programs.
A variety of training programs exist, including a predoctoral practicum program for psychology graduate students at The Ohio State University and other regional universities, a predoctoral internship accredited by the American Psychological Association, and postdoctoral fellowships in pediatric neuropsychology and pediatric psychology.
