Hannah Coleman, Staff Associate

Laura Phillips, PsyD, ABPdN is the Senior Director and a senior neuropsychologist in the Learning and Development Center at the Child Mind Institute.  A board-certified pediatric neuropsychologist, she specializes in the neuropsychological evaluation of children, adolescents and young adults with a wide range of conditions that impact learning, behavior and social-emotional functioning, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disorders and autism. Also trained in the treatment of children with anxiety and mood disorders, Dr. Phillips conducts in-depth psychological assessments and thoughtfully considers the complex interaction between a child’s learning, emotions and school placement.

Dr. Phillips has specialty interest in the neuroscience of reading and the identification of dyslexia. She oversaw the development and piloting of a small group reading intervention for underserved, at-risk readers in the NYC public school system and has consulted to a curriculum developer and local school districts to help bridge the gap between the science and practice of reading instruction.  She continues to provide caregiver and professional workshops about reading development, instruction, and remediation, as well as other topics related to neurodevelopment, learning disorders, and the social-emotional well-being of children and adolescents.     

Through her training and work experiences, Dr. Phillips has worked closely with schools and specialists in the New York City metropolitan area and consults with families about how to best meet the needs of their children. In addition to evaluations, her work with children, families and schools has included classroom observations to inform behavioral programs, teacher consultation, social skills curriculum development and remedial academic support.

Having trained and worked in a variety of settings, including public and private hospitals, a specialized school for children with language-based learning disabilities and a group practice, Dr. Phillips has both the passion and the expertise to help children and adolescents with complex developmental and neurological presentations meet their social, emotional and academic potential
