Lorri Kais, PhD

Dr. Lorri Kais received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Loyola University Chicago. While in Chicago, she trained in both pediatric neuropsychology and lifespan psychology at the University of Chicago Medical Center. She then completed a clinical internship in pediatric psychology and neuropsychology at the University of Minnesota Medical School.

 To further her specialization in pediatric neuropsychology, Dr. Kais completed a 2-year post-doctoral fellowship at Children’s Hospital Colorado (CHCO). While at CHCO, Dr. Kais worked closely with a wide range of children, families and medical professionals in traditional outpatient, inpatient, and interdisciplinary team settings. Across placements, Dr. Kais has contributed to research programs examining neuropsychological predictors and outcomes in pediatric genetic populations (e.g., Turner syndrome and NF1).

Dr. Kais aims to personally connect with each patient and family to understand their unique goals of evaluation and provide targeted recommendations for treatment planning by utilizing her training in evidenced-based diagnostic evaluation and therapy. She has evaluated infants, children and young adults with a wide variety of congenital and acquired conditions, including genetic disorders, congenital heart disease, leukemia, brain tumors, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, and other neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., intellectual disability, learning disability, tics, and ADHD).
