Abstract and Keywords

Children with chronic health conditions form a heterogeneous group at increased risk for cognitive and emotional difficulties that may lead to difficulties in academic and social environments. Rehabilitation psychologists are in a unique position to provide support to children with chronic health conditions due to their expertise in neuropsychology, mental health, and psychological aspects of illness and disability. However, research in pediatric rehabilitation psychology is limited by small sample sizes, cross-sectional research designs, and a lack of empirically supported interventions that are population and domain specific. In the future, research in these areas will provide a rich literature to guide work in pediatric rehabilitation psychology.

Keywords: Pediatrics, chronic health condition, neurodevelopmental, rehabilitation, epilepsy, cerebral palsy
