Dr. Alexander is a pediatric neuropsychologist who specializes in neuropsychological evaluations and individualized treatment recommendations of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with a range of medical, neurodevelopmental, and neuropsychiatric conditions. Her approach to neuropsychology is to integrate knowledge from neuropsychological testing with data from educational and medical records to quantify functional deficits in the context of the central nervous system (i.e., brain) using a developmental framework. More specifically, Dr. Alexander has developed particular interest in early childhood neurodevelopmental evaluations for children with complex medical (e.g., prematurity, early childhood cancers, congenital heart problems, genetic disorders) and/or social histories (e.g., international adoption), as well as acquired neurological dysfunction (e.g., brain injury, late effects of cancer treatments, prenatal exposure to toxic substances), genetic conditions, and lysosomal storage diseases. She is also interested in the impact of adverse childhood experiences on neurodevelopment. Dr. Alexander is a member of the International Neuropsychological Society, National Academy of Neuropsychology, and the American Psychological Association/Division 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) & Division 7 (Developmental Psychology). She is an adjunct professor at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Alexander sees patients at the Plymouth office.
