Biography:

 

Dr. Wilma Rosen is a developmental neuropsychologist who specializes in neuropsychological assessment of children ages 9 years and above focusing on cognitive functioning during transitional periods in pre-adolescence, adolescence, and early adulthood. A developmental approach to disorders, such as learning disabilities and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, involves not only identification and delineation of the disorder, but its manifestations specific to different developmental periods or stages and its impact on academic, psychosocial and psychological functioning. Dr. Rosen also provides evaluations for children and adolescents entering new academic environments and in need of academic accommodations.

 

Dr. Rosen received a B.A. in mathematics from Cedar Crest College, and M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology from Clark University. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY.

 

Dr. Rosen has taught undergraduate psychology courses at Wellesley College, Boston University and Suffolk University, and graduate courses in child neuropsychology and neuropsychological assessment at the City University of New York. She has worked as an experimental psychologist at the Bronx Veterans Administration Medical Center and clinical neuropsychologist at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. From 1984 to 1996 she was the Director of Neuropsychology in the Department of Psychiatry at ColumbiaPresbyterian Medical Center, New York City, where she supervised and trained pre-doctoral interns and post-doctoral fellows in clinical neuropsychology. Dr. Rosen has been in full-time private practice since 1996. She has been licensed in psychology by the State of New York since 1981 and is active in professional neuropsychology organizations.
