Description of Externship


The Center for Attention and Learning (CAL) at North Shore-LIJ Lenox Hill Hospital is offering Clinical Child Neuropsychology Externship positions annually. The mission of CAL is to provide comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations to low-income school-aged children with learning disabilities and/or ADHD. Externs are expected to work two days per week. The extern will gain experience in the following areas:

Neuropsychological evaluation of the LD or ADHD child. Opportunities to evaluate other diagnoses exist.

Consultation and advocacy assistance with families trying to navigate the special education system.

Behavioral and psychosocial approaches to addressing issues related learning disorders and ADHD.

All externs will receive individual supervision, and participate in a weekly didactic seminar designed to provide an in-depth understanding of current issues in learning disabilities and ADHD. Also, externs will have the opportunity to attend Grand Rounds at Lenox Hill Hospital. The CAL staff includes five staff psychologists, four post-doctoral neuropsychology fellows, and a social worker. We work closely with legal advocates (via formal partnerships), and child psychiatrists at the Outpatient Center for Mental Health, which is part of the Department of Psychiatry. Lenox Hill Hospital is now part of the North Shore-LIJ healthcare system.
