Dr. Reger specializes in conducting comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents to better understand brain-behavior relationships. She collaborates with parents/caregivers, schools, and medical providers to inform them about the individual’s strengths, weaknesses, and how his/her cognitive development has been impacted by a specific brain dysfunction.
