The mission of Akron Children's pediatric neuropsychology fellowship program is to provide advanced-level clinical, didactic and academic training to produce competent psychologists in the specialty of clinical pediatric neuropsychology.
This is a 2-year residency. Three days (60%) of the postdoctoral resident's week will be spent engaged in providing clinical service, including assessment and treatment activities. The remaining two days (40%) will be spent in research and educational activities.
Akron Children's neuropsychology program provides neuropsychological assessment of pediatric inpatients and outpatients. Patients come from a range of departments, including psychiatry/psychology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation/physiatry, neurogenetics, neurology, pediatrics, and general medicine, as well as from outside referral sources and school settings.
These referrals span the list of neuropathological conditions such as cerebrovascular disorders, genetic and metabolic disorders, neurocutaneous disorders, neuromuscular disorders, childhood cancer including tumors, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, developmental disorders and traumatic brain injury.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
