Philosophy of Care

Our assessment model in the Neuropsychology Program focuses on the whole child. Our assessments evaluate multiple modalities of cognitive functioning, as well as social engagement, learning, and the development of adaptive skills. We also focus on the development of children in the context of their families and communities. I also have a personal interest in facilitating as much skill development and functional independence as possible. I begin working with children during infancy to support their development over time.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Jennifer Turek Queally, PhD, is a neuropsychologist who sees patients in Boston Children’s Spina Bifida Program and the Neuropsychology Program. She also has clinical and research interests in the transition into adulthood and self regulation/executive functioning skill development.  Dr. Queally is a supervisor in the predoctoral internship program and the neuropsychology postdoctoral residency program. She completed her fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Boston Children's in 2005 and is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School.

Although Dr. Queally worked closely with oncology patients for years, much of her clinical work has now transitioned to be with children who have neurodevelopmental disorders; many of her current patients were born with a medical condition or were affected shortly after birth, changing their developmental trajectory. She has a strong interest in facilitating functional independence; each child deserves to have a team working with them to help support their development over time and to reach their potential. She is  honored to be included in the teams of so many of our patients.
