About Me

Dr. Louis CalabroAs an ABPP board-certified neuropsychologist in the Hudson Valley, those in need of my assessment-evaluation services are children and adults challenged by learning difficulties, attentional deficits, memory problems, and pragmatic-social communication issues with underlying causes in neurological and/or environmental circumstances. In addition these individuals also unfortunately, but understandably, experience emotional distress associated with these difficulties. These difficulties may have had their onset in early development, through illness, as a result of injury, or developing in later adulthood. Their conditions usually impact major life roles in school, work, and relationships.

My board-certification as a neuropsychologist exceeds a set of techniques occasionally used by a general psychologist. My patients who need such skills deserve a full-time devotion to an independent discipline of clinical neuropsychology. I'm dedicated to the application of evidenced-based brain behavior relationships within neuropsychological testing, evaluations, and psycho-educational assessment.

I never forget my pledge to respect the dignity and worth of each individual. From the experience of personal injury and adversity, I bring  with me to each patient a reminder of my mission to assess their needs compassionately, alleviate their distress, and promote higher cognitive , behavioral, and emotional functioning.
