The Pediatric Neuropsychology Program at Tampa General Hospital provides neuropsychological evaluations for children from 18 months to young adulthood. Neuropsychological evaluations are completed when children have 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 individuals involved in the child’s care to help support the child’s unique needs.
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

Our staff will verify your insurance benefits and schedule the assessment.
