Is there any difference between a neuropsychologist and a pediatric neuropsychologist?

A neuropsychologist is a doctoral level licensed health services provider of neuropsychological diagnosis and intervention services. A pediatric neuropsychologist treats individuals from birth through 25 years of age. A pediatric neuropsychologist applies the principles of assessment and intervention, based on the scientific study of developmental theory and behavior as it relates to normal and abnormal functioning of the developing central nervous system.  Typically, the brain and central nervous system attains maturity around 25 years of age.
