  • Understanding dyslexia
    by Andrea Joliet, Assistant Director, Interactive Marketing & PR ( 2012-02-01 15:04:48 )



The Division of Neurobehavioral Health serves as a partner in the care of your child to assess his cognitive strengths and weaknesses, ease emotional stress, develop a plan of treatment and intervention for home and school, and improve the quality of life for your child, family and caregivers.

Children with all types of known or suspected neurologic disorders, such as epilepsy, head injury, neuromusculature disorders and chronic medical illness/pain, can receive treatment for cognitive, behavioral, and emotional aspects of their functioning.

Our team conducts a thorough evaluation of your child that may include:

  • full cognitive (thinking and problem-solving) assessment
  • academic testing
  • memory and attention examinations

This evaluation is used to determine the evidence-based treatments and non-medical interventions may be necessary, such as habit-reversal training for tics, behavioral treatment for sleep disorders, and cognitive behavioral therapies for headaches.

We will also work with you and your child’s school to integrate the findings and recommendations from our evaluations to help your child meet her best chance for success in the school environment. Parent education and advocacy, information about community resources, and additional parental support is provided as needed.

Our pediatric psychologists, neuropsychologists, counselors and social workers work with pediatric neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists (physical and rehabilitation medicine), and developmental-behavioral pediatricians as needed, to treat all elements of a child’s condition.



Akron Children's division of Neurobehavioral Health performs clinical research to maintain high patient satisfaction and achieve the most effective outcomes.

The goal of our research is to examine psychological functionality in children suffering from headaches, ADHD, mild head injuries, epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

We also offer fellowship training programs in pediatric psychology and pediatric neuropsychology, as well as provide practicum training for school psychology doctorate programs, in collaboration with Kent State University.

Our team also is involved in didactic training for child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, developmental-behavioral pediatrics fellows and medical students.
