Daisy Pascualvaca (Dr. Daisy to most) obtained her doctorate degree in Clinical Neuropsychology in 1989. She completed post-doctoral fellowships at Albert Einstein Medical Center and New York University, and came to Washington as a senior research fellow with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1991.
Eight years later, she started two major projects: raising her daughter and developing an independent neuropsychology practice. Born in Cuba and raised in Spain, Dr. Daisy is fluent in English and Spanish, but uses her mastery of “kid’s language” the most – serving as translator between children, parents, teachers.
Dr. Daisy’s research and clinical interests have centered on the attention problems associated with AD/HD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities, and psychiatric disorders.
