Meet Robin Peterson, PhD

In my work with children and families, I use several sources of information to learn about how the child is functioning in different contexts (family, home, and community) and to try to identify the basis for any current concerns. I then strive to work with families to develop a treatment plan that will capitalize on the child's strengths and support the child in areas of weakness to promote an optimal developmental trajectory.

Get to know her background

I provide neuropsychological evaluations to children and adolescents in order to help understand brain-based learning or developmental challenges and give parents, schools, and the medical team guidance about appropriate supports. I am particularly interested in working with children with the following conditions: concussion, traumatic brain injury, spina bifida, hydrocephalus, and learning disabilities.
