Dr. Jerry Lindquist

Psychologist and Occupational Therapist
PHD – Psychology, MA – Occupational Therapy
Post doctorate work – Neuropsychology

Dr. Jerry Lindquist is a psychologist, neuropsychologist
and occupational therapist. He has worked with children,
parents and families for over 35 years. He has been
practicing occupational therapy since 1980
and received his license to practice psychology in
California in 1990. Dr. Lindquist specializes in the
treatment of people on the autism spectrum.
Sensory processing disorders, neuropsychological
assessment and treatment of special needs children
and their families are additional areas of emphasis.
Neuropsychological and occupational therapy approaches
involve the assessment and treatment of disordered
brain-behavior relationships such as those seen in
learning disabilities, autism and other neurological disorders.
While occupational therapists focus on lower brain centers
like those involved in mediating postural responses and
more autonomic sensory and motor functions,
neuropsychologists devote attention to higher-level brain
functions such as memory, cognition and attention.
A comprehensive evaluation can paint a complete picture
of a child’s functioning with an accurate profile of strengths
and weaknesses.
