Dr. Priscilla Morrison
Priscilla Morrison, PsyD, is a pediatric neuropsychologist who specializes in the evaluation of children and adolescents with a variety of cognitive, academic, and behavioral challenges. Dr. Morrison has particular expertise in assessing and diagnosing concerns related to attention problems, learning difficulties, and autism.
Dr. Morrison provides a range of testing services to help understand the strengths and weaknesses of each child. Her approach includes an intake evaluation, school observation, collateral interviews with professionals who work with your child, and multiple testing sessions. At the completion of testing, she provides a comprehensive set of recommendations that serve as a roadmap for educational and treatment planning. Dr. Morrison provides clear feedback to parents about her diagnostic impressions and suggestions for interventions. If developmentally appropriate, she can also provide feedback to your child. Her reports are often used to aid in the development of individualized education programs (IEPs) and behavior intervention plans (BIPs), and she welcomes the opportunity to partner with school personnel to best support the students she evaluates. She also frequently works with special education attorneys to help families obtain the supports their child needs.
Dr. Morrison embraces the challenge of gathering information from a variety of sources and piecing them together like a puzzle to create a picture of how each child learns. While structured in her testing approach, she also maintains flexibility to properly assess and understand each child’s unique needs.
Prior to joining the Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dr. Morrison was a pediatric neuropsychologist at the Child Mind Institute. Following the completion of her doctorate in clinical psychology at Pepperdine University, Dr. Morrison completed her internship at New York University’s Rusk Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine and her formal post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Sutter Medical Foundation. She has also received specialty training at the University of California Los Angeles and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Dr. Morrison has extensive training and experience working in a range of settings, including outpatient programs, inpatient hospitals, and the school system. The breadth of Dr. Morrison’s work in these settings enables her to effectively evaluate and advocate for youth from diverse backgrounds, with a range of cognitive and academic concerns.
