Child Neuropsychology

Our clinical research aims to improve the lives of children with brain injury by contributing to the development of knowledge in the field at the level of theory, practice and implementation.

Our Objectives:

  • To better understand the cognitive, behavioural, educational, emotional and social impacts of childhood brain disorders, and their interactions.
  • To explore mechanisms for long term difficulties following brain insult, using a bio-psycho-social framework.
  • To better understand normal child development.
  • To develop novel evidence-based assessment and treatment techniques to enhance clinical practice and maximise accuracy of diagnosis in children with brain disorders.
  • To develop and evaluate psychological and pharmacological interventions for the treatment of children with brain disorders and their families.
  • To support high quality doctoral and post-doctoral training within a scientist-practitioner model
