About Us

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 care for children and adolescents. The American Board of Pediatric Neuropsychology (ABPdN) is designed to develop specific academy-organized competency in pediatric neuropsychology. The ABPdN was established in 1999 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.
