Getting To The Heart Of The Matter In Order To Treat It.
To help your child develop fully — body, mind and spirit — our skilled pediatric neuropsychologists are here to diagnose, assess and treat health issues related to abnormal child development as well as medical, psychiatric and neurologic conditions. Our focus is to look at the cognitive and behavioral effects of complex medical conditions. These include ADHD, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, traumatic brain injuries and more.
Working closely and in collaboration with other pediatric specialists at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, our neuropsychologists tap into the collective expertise of behavioral neurologists, pediatric neurologists, child psychiatrists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and physicians.
