As an expert in child neuropsychology, I work as a specialist physician in the Neurology Department of SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital and the School Learning Disorders Unit (UTAE). My main line of work is the diagnosis and management of school learning disorders (dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, dyscalculia) and the neuropsychological study and follow up of children with Acquired Brain Injury (brain tumours, CNS, CET) and at-risk newborns (prematurity, etc.). I actively participate in teaching activities and workshops to improve the schooling of children with learning differences.
