The Children’s Neuropsychology department offers Cognitive Remediation led by senior neuropsychologist, Kathleen O’Toole, Ph.D., ABPP/CN, and Lindsay Luton, Psy.D.
The nine, hour-long sessions include children with neurological disorders (e.g. epilepsy, Tourette syndrome, cerebral palsy) and involve pre-and-post testing. Customized activities based on individual neuropsychological evaluations are also provided.
These nine sessions help improve sustained, selective and divided attention. In between the sessions, each child gets homework assignments to practice their attention skills at home. Parents will receive reports after each session and a final report after completion of the nine sessions, which contains tips to help them practice with their child.
Before cognitive remediation can take place, the child needs a neuropsychological evaluation. Interested parents should contact the Children's Neuropsychology department to enroll.
