About Amelia H. Lofaro, Psy.D.

Dr. Lofaro provides neuropsychological evaluations for children and young adults with a wide range of developmental, medical, neurological, and social-emotional concerns. She specializes in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning for children with developmental disorders (e.g. intellectual disabilities, ADHD, executive functioning problems, learning disabilities, autism spectrum, and language/communication difficulties), medical and neurological disorders (e.g. concussion/brain injury, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and genetic disorders), and social-emotional difficulties (e.g. mood and anxiety disorders, behavior problems, thought disorders).

Dr. Lofaro also has additional training as a school psychologist. She takes a systems-based developmental approach to her neuropsychological assessments, as she recognizes that each child, while unique in their own profile of strengths and weaknesses, is also a part of a larger “system” including family, school, and community. Each part of this larger system must also be considered in order to best understand how to support the child’s needs.
