What is developmental neuropsychology?
Developmental neuropsychology is a professional specialty focused on learning and behavior in relationship to a child’s brain. A developmental neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise and specific training in how learning and behavior are associated with the neurodevelopment of brain structures and systems. Formal testing of abilities such as memory, executive functions, and language skills are used to assess brain functioning. The developmental neuropsychologist conducts the evaluation, interprets the results, and makes specific recommendations.
