Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialist area of psychology that focuses on the assessment of brain function. Clinical Neuropsychologists have expertise in understanding how developmental, psychological and neurological conditions affect an individual’s thinking skills, emotions and behaviour.
At the Child and Adolescent Neuropsychology Group, our Neuropsychologists are particularly skilled in assessing children, adolescents and young adults. While we are able to provide input for any developmental, psychological and neurological conditions that affect thinking skills, emotions and behaviour, we specialise in the assessment and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Developmental Language Disorder, Specific Reading and Learning Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Tourette and Tic Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
