Dr. Pinard's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pinard "Dedicated, respectful, and collaborative professional with considerable experience conducting neuropsychological assessments for children/adolescents with learning disabilities as well as those with complex medical, neurodevelopmental, and neurological disorders. I have received both breadth and depth of training in pediatric neuropsychology which prepared me for my role in the pediatric Neuro-Immunology, Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders, and Learning Disabilities programs in the Department of Neurology. In addition to my sound clinical training, I have a solid research background. My research has focused on examining contextual and biologically-based correlates of child behavior problems. The ultimate goal is identification of potential moderators and mediators of maladaptive outcomes, particularly in under-represented and at-risk groups."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pinard "I am committed to providing quality services that promote the optional development of children and adolescents across academic, social, emotional, and behavioral domains. Thus, consulting with professionals involved in the patient's care and communicating results in a manner that is easily understood by the family is an essential component of my practice.

Why I entered medicine  I have always been interested in understanding the basis of human behavior. As an undergraduate student, I became involved in a research project designed to examine the development of emotion regulation skills during infancy and early childhood. This was such a rewarding experience because it not only introduced me to the research process and the value of methodical rigor to the scientific process, but also instilled in me an appreciation for and desire to be involved in research.  However, I loved interacting with and helping people. So, I decided to pursue a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, with specialty in pediatric neuropsychology, as this would provide a solid foundation for understanding brain-behavior relations, but would also allow me to provide clinical services and participate in research. This is very important to me as I believe that improving diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for children with complex medical illnesses can best be achieved through integration of clinical work and research collaborations across disciplines.
