12-15-2016 (Akron, Ohio )

Katrina Lindsay, Ph.D., NCSP, has joined Akron Children’s Hospital’s NeuroDevelopmental Science Center as a pediatric psychologist.

She brings to Akron Children’s a wide range of experiences in teaching and psychology, working with children and teens with chronic illnesses and learning problems in both clinical and school environments.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Dr. Lindsay earned her master’s degree in cognitive psychology and doctorate in pediatric school psychology from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. Her research includes investigating the contributions of disease severity, psychological factors and cognition to behavioral functioning in youth with chronic illnesses.

She recently completed her fellowship in pediatric psychology at Akron Children’s Hospital, where she worked with patients in the Healthy Weight Clinic, on the hospital’s consultation/liaison service, and in the Showers Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. In addition to her pediatric training, Dr. Lindsay is also a national certified school psychologist.

Dr. Lindsay has developed a new service for children and teens with tics and Tourette syndrome, called C-BIT (Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics). As one of her special areas of interest, Dr. Lindsay is a certified C-BIT provider and active in the tic/Tourette community at the state and national levels. In addition, Dr. Lindsay also serves as one of the two psychologists in Akron Children’s School Success Clinic, a multi-disciplinary assessment service for children behaviorally and academically struggling in school.

Dr. Lindsay and her family reside in Bath Township.

Akron Children's NeuroDevelopmental Science Center brings together 5 pediatric specialties - developmental-behavioral pediatrics, neurology, neurosurgery, physiatry, and behavioral and neuropsychology - under one roof to deliver the best outcomes and quality of life for patients.
