bio

Thomas Duda, PhD, is a pediatric neuropsychologist at Dayton Children's. His role is to provide neuropsychological services to patients, families, and health care professionals at Dayton Children's Hospital. Neuropsychological services involve meeting with the family to understand their concerns and their child's history; assessing their child's thinking and other skills to identify strengths and challenges; and communicating this information to the family and their child's doctor (in-person and through written reports). The child's doctor uses these results to inform your child’s medical care, and families use this information to help their child be more successful at home, school, and/or work.
