Children with neurological disorders have dynamic cognitive and behavioral profiles, calling for flexible management. Frequently, these children have longstanding disabilities, requiring interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches for assessment and intervention. While many of these children have considerable impairments, a thorough neuropsychological assessment can be helpful in pinpointing strengths and weaknesses and planning appropriate interventions. While many individuals have static “lesions,” the impact of the CNS impairment can change throughout the child’s life. A developmental framework to neuropsychological assessment is essential, and the pediatric neuropsychologist should be considered an important part of the child’s interdisciplinary treatment team.
