Expanding the use of neuropsychological and developmental assessment in supporting individuals with medical complexity

February 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute is pleased to welcome Eva Mamak, PhD, CPsych, ABPP-CN, as the presenter of the 2022 Barbara Hanna Wasik Distinguished Lecture.

This presentation will seek to address:

  • The nature of neuropsychological assessment in a medical setting;
  • The application of neuropsychological assessment in assessing functional outcomes in underserved populations, e.g. those with intellectual/developmental disabilities and social communication concerns.

Eva Mamak, PhD, CPsych, ABPP-CN, is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario. She completed a PhD in School Psychology at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, a pre-doctoral internship at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and a Post-Doctoral fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Her clinical work is focused on evidence-based assessment of infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents with rare disease, genetic conditions, and medication-refractory epilepsy.

Mamak’s research focuses on neurocognitive outcomes in rare disease and neurological conditions, with a focus on multi-disciplinary, multi-center studies, and clinical monitoring of functional outcomes following novel treatment. She is involved in clinical training at the pre- and post-doctoral level.
