About Us


AAPdN - The American Academy Of Pediatric Neuropsychology

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.
