About Karen Burk Paull
Dr. Paull is a pediatric neuropsychologist who evaluates children, adolescents and college students between the ages of 4 and 22. Using a comprehensive assessment approach, Dr. Paull’s evaluations document areas of strength and weakness, and when appropriate, a diagnosis of a Learning Disability, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or psychological concern (e.g., Anxiety, Depression) is made. Recommendations for intervention, support, modifications and accommodations are offered to help in the development of the “whole” child – both in and out of school.
Dr. Paull will work directly with you and your child from the start all the way through to the finish of your assessment, completing the testing herself so that she is able to observe firsthand how your child approaches problem-solving and can provide useful recommendations.
What is a Neuropsychologist?
Neuropsychologists typically have a doctoral degree in Clinical or Counseling Psychology. They then complete a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology, developing expertise in neurocognitive assessment and learning about brain development, neuroanatomy, and the relationships between brain and behavior. Neuropsychologists are not medical doctors and do not have prescription writing privileges.
