Pediatric Outpatient Neuropsychology | Tampa General Hospital

Pediatric Outpatient Neuropsychology

The Pediatric Neuropsychology Program at Tampa General Hospital provides neuropsychological evaluations for children from birth to young adulthood. Neuropsychological evaluations are completed when children have cognitive, emotional, behavioral, adjustment or learning problems that are a direct result of a medical, neurological or neurodevelopmental disorder. The program serves children with a diverse range of conditions and provides family-centered care within a confidential environment. Our licensed pediatric neuropsychologists conduct evaluations in collaboration with any and all individuals involved in the child’s care to help support the child’s unique needs.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

A pediatric neuropsychologist uses a set of standardized non-invasive tests and observes behavior to determine the child’s individual pattern of strengths and weaknesses. A pediatric neuropsychological evaluation often includes assessment in the following areas:

Executive functioning
Intellectual functioning
Language skills
Nonverbal and visual spatial skills
Processing speed
Fine motor skills
Academic achievement
Behavioral and emotional adjustment
