The Neuropsychology Program at Rhode Island Hospital developed a pediatric service to meet the growing need for comprehensive and integrated assessments of children with brain and central nervous system dysfunction.
Our team consults with a wide variety of professionals in medical, educational, and mental health settings.
Neuropsychological problems can affect learning, memory, organization, attention, and the regulation of emotions and behavior. Our goal is to help families and providers better understand a child’s strengths and weaknesses in order to help a child learn, grow, and reach his or her potential.
Who do we see?
Children are referred to the Neuropsychology Program at Rhode Island Hospital by people within and outside Rhode Island Hospital, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pediatricians, other physicians and nursing personnel, and school systems. We see children and teens of all ages, as well as some adults with developmental or medical disorders dating from childhood.
