Lindsay Whitman Ph.D. conducts neuropsychological assessments with children and adolescents. A neuropsychological evaluation is helpful when it is suspected that a child is struggling with a learning disability, developmental delay, or intellectual disability and/or is experiencing difficulty with skills such as attention, memory, or executive functioning (i.e., working memory, organization, planning). This type of evaluation may also be indicated for children who are experiencing behavioral, social, or psychological difficulties or in whom the reason for functional difficulty is largely unclear. The process often helps to identify any appropriate clinical diagnoses, but more importantly, works to clearly identify the types of support services will enable a child to perform at their best.
Dr. Whitman conducts all neuropsychological procedures herself, strives to generate reports that are streamlined and clearly written, and provides timely verbal feedback sessions. A comprehensive written report follows within days of the feedback session. She offers follow-up services as well (e.g., school consultation).
Dr. Whitman’s clinical training includes the evaluation of children, adolescents, and adults presenting with a variety of cognitive risk factors including developmental delay, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), learning disabilities, (e.g., dyslexia), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), traumatic brain injury, and psychiatric/mood difficulties. Her postdoctoral fellowship at New York University Comprehensive Epilepsy Center provided specialized training in the cognitive assessment and pre-surgical evaluation of individuals with seizures/epilepsy. Dr. Whitman has presented empirical research at national and international neuropsychology conferences and has published several peer-reviewed articles on issues related to cognitive functioning in epilepsy and adolescent personality development.
