Welcome! 

I am a board-certified pediatric neuropsychologist, and specialize in assessment and treatment planning for persons who have problems with learning and executive functions.

I also consult with organizations about program evaluation, and I conduct workshops and deliver lectures to groups all over the world about education, neurocognitive disorders, parenting styles, and other topics of interest to parents and educators.

I am also the chair of the Association Montessori Internationale’s Global Research Committee.

You can find out more about my lectures for Montessori audiences here.


I’m a past president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology. You can learn about pediatric neuropsychology and find a great pediatric neuropsychologist in your community here.


You can read about, download slides, and watch screencasts of some of my lectures at www.BuildingBetterBrains.com.
