Jared Band Psy.D.

I am a pediatric neuropsychologist in the NYC area who is passionate about working with children and adolescents that present with a variety of neurodevelopmental diagnoses including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Specific Learning Disorders (LD), and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). I received my doctorate in School-Clinical Child Psychology from the APA-Accredited Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) program at Pace University in New York City. I have trained In multiple settings across the NYC area, including both hospital and school systems, where I collaborated with various providers and worked as part of multidisciplinary teams to best serve the needs of children, teens, and their families. I have focused my training specifically on administering comprehensive psychological assessments for students, navigating educational systems, and understanding child development. After earning my doctorate degree, I satisfied all requirements and am a licensed psychologist in the State of New York. I also specialized within the field of clinical psychology by completing a formal, two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology at the Center for Attention and Learning (CAL) at Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health.

Currently, I work as a pediatric neuropsychologist in private practice at The Gold Center. I also hold a faculty appointment at Lenox Hill Hospital by serving as a staff pediatric neuropsychologist. My routine clinical practice includes conducting and supervising comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents that present with various academic, attentional, language-based, social-emotional, behavioral, and developmental concerns. I practice assessment from a strengths-based, collaborative, and therapeutic approach. This involves viewing the evaluation process not only as a tool to identify weaknesses and better understand how to treat said difficulties, but also as a window into further comprehending a holistic view of the individual person. I work directly with family members, educators, and providers to understand and implement recommendations from the evaluation in such a way that emphasizes the patient’s individual assets while simultaneously addressing their areas of vulnerability. I have a unique skillset and passion for educational advocacy in my role as a pediatric neuropsychologist, which guides me in helping families understand and retrieve what a student truly needs to demonstrate their genuine ability in the school environment.
