The American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology (AAPdN) was developed to advocate, educate, and allow for
collaboration between individuals and professional specialties with a passion for providing the best for
children and adolescents. The American Board of Pediatric Neuropsychology (ABPdN) is designed to develop
specific academy-organized competency in pediatric neuropsychology. The AAPdN was established in 1996 and has
been continuously active through a re-incorporation in March of 2004. Once an individual passes the ABPdN
examination and becomes board certified in pediatric neuropsychology, their names are placed in a public
directory of Board Certified providers.
Our mission is to foster a community of pediatric neuropsychologists who meet standards of advanced competency and are committed to continuous learning and advocacy for the neuropsychological health of children and adolescents.
