The clinicians in the Neuropsychology Program bring a broad spectrum of specialized skills to the evaluation of brain–behavior relationships in adults and children. Led by Hope Schreiber, PsyD, ABPP/CN, a board-certified neuropsychologist with nearly 30 years of experience, our team is proficient in assessing conditions throughout the lifespan. Neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, learning and attention disorders, brain injury, the effects of medical illness, genetic and infectious disease and dementia, are only some of the issues we address at Tufts Children's Hospital.
A neuropsychological evaluation consists of history-gathering sessions and interviews, as well as pencil or computerized tests in order to understand attention, memory and learning functions. In this way, we can work with your physician and other caregivers or schools to form treatment recommendations to enhance daily life and functioning.
