Consulting Pediatric Neuropsychologist
*Dr. Nancy Roosa is not accepting new patients.
Nancy Roosa, Psy.D. has been engaged in providing neuropsychological evaluations for children since 1997. She enjoys working with a range of children, particularly those with autism spectrum disorders, as well as children with attentional issues, executive function deficits, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, or other social, emotional or behavioral problems.
Dr. Roosa’s evaluations integrate data obtained from a wide range of standardized assessment tools with information gained from history, input from parents, teachers and providers, and important observations gleaned from interacting with the child. Her approach to testing is playful and supportive, often working with children with complex profiles and those whose presentations do not fit neatly into any one diagnostic box.
Dr. Roosa began her work with children in 1980, with an internship at Bradley Hospital in Providence R.I. She has also worked at several Boston area hospitals, youth guidance centers, college counseling centers and community mental health centers.
She graduated from Brown University with a degree in Neural Science and then completed her graduate work at Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Roosa is a member of Massachusetts Neuropsychological Association, Massachusetts Psychological Association, and The American Psychological Association.
Dr. Roosa is most proud of her own two children, who are growing up much too quickly and continually finding creative ways to challenge her own parenting skills along the way.Return To Team Page
