Cristina Sperrazza, PsyD

Neuropsychologist & Clinical Psychologist

Cristina Sperrazza, PsyD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and formally trained neuropsychologist with vast experience conducting neuropsychological evaluations of toddlers, school-age children, adolescents, and young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders, co-morbid emotional and behavioral difficulties, and co-existing medical conditions. Areas of clinical interest and specialization include Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Specific Learning Disorders (SLDs), Intellectual Disability (ID), language disorders, executive functions, anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, and adaptive skills in toddlers, children, teens, and young adults. Dr. Sperrazza is formally trained on the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R). She also provides clinical intervention in the form of executive function coaching to students who need support with time management skills, task initiation, studying, planning, and organizing. Based on her clinical experience and training, Dr. Sperrazza believes that a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach is an integral part of a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation in order to identify appropriate recommendations, improve outcomes for patients and their families, and help them reach their goals.

Dr. Sperrazza obtained her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). She completed an externship at Hahnemann Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry and Neuropsychology, where she conducted clinical intakes for bariatric patients, neuropsychological evaluations for neurology patients, and pre- and post-surgical cognitive assessments for cardiac patients involved in research studies. Dr. Sperrazza completed an American Psychological Association (APA)-accredited internship at Intercommunity Action, Inc., where she worked as a child and adult outpatient community mental health clinician, providing individual and group therapy, comprehensive biopsychosocial evaluations, intakes, psychological and psycho-educational batteries, autism assessments, and crisis interventions. Dr. Sperrazza went on to complete a one-year post-doctoral fellowship in clinical assessment and research through the Healthy Brain Network at the Child Mind Institute (CMI). She then completed two years of formal post-doctoral training in pediatric neuropsychology, with her first year being at the Learning and Development Center at CMI and her second year being at NeurAbilities Healthcare. Dr. Sperrazza enjoys giving back to the community by conducting presentations to offer psychoeducation and share resources related to ADHD, ASD, SLDs, executive functions, and other related topics.
