Shannon Lundy, PhD

Pediatric neuropsychologist

Shannon Lundy is a psychologist and pediatric neuropsychologist, a specialist in brain functions such as attention and language. She provides consultations and assessments for children and adolescents with a variety of medical conditions that affect the central nervous system and development. In performing an evaluation, her goal is to identify neurocognitive strengths and weaknesses related to a child's medical condition and help families, medical providers and educators better understand how the patient's condition or treatment impacts daily function and ongoing development. She works with families and educators to develop a supportive plan for each child, tailoring recommendations for accommodations, services and interventions at home, in school and within community settings. Her expertise encompasses pediatric oncology, central nervous system injuries, pediatric multiple sclerosis and various neurodevelopmental disorders, such as neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerves.

In research, Lundy studies the late effects of treatment in pediatric brain tumor survivors as well as early neurodevelopmental assessment and intervention in children living in low-resource countries. She serves as psychology director in the developmental medicine division of the UCSF Department of Pediatrics. She also directs the neurodevelopmental assessment program that provides consultation and assessment services for clinical studies related to pediatric neurodevelopmental conditions.

Lundy earned her doctoral degree in a combined academic and clinical psychology program at the University of Arizona. She completed a fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Cambridge Health Alliance and Boston Children's Hospital, affiliates of Harvard Medical School.
