Adult and Child Neuropsychology

Thomas E. Sullivan earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Cincinnati in 1994. His fellowship at Yale University focused on adult neuropsychology. His fellowship in the Psychology Department at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center broadened his expertise to include the neuropsychological evaluation of children.

Neuropsychologist as Expert Witness

Dr. Sullivan is a board certified neuropsychologist who has provided over 40,000 hours of neuropsychological services. He devotes approximately 30% of his practice to legal consultation (50% plaintiff; 40% defense; 10% other). His legal cases originate primarily in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, with occasional cases nationally. In his role as an expert witness, Dr. Sullivan performs scientifically-valid testing capable of withstanding a Daubert challenge. His evaluations can:

  • detect even mild brain damage
  • verify the likely cause of impairment
  • predict lasting effects of injuries
  • expose malingering ("faking")

Medical Record Review and Analysis

Dr. Sullivan is often retained for his expert analytical skills in reviewing previous brain injury evaluations by unqualified practitioners. Review by an expert in the field can help identify erroneous results and rectify mistaken conclusions. Expert reviews of medical records may also reveal critical information about the history of a client's neuropsychological difficulties.

Clinical and Consulting Neuropsychology

In addition to his forensic neuropsychology practice and work with professional athletes, Dr. Sullivan operates a busy private practice as a clinical neuropsychologist. He also consults to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Dr. Sullivan is a certified provider of the Cogscreen AE computer assessment system used to evaluate pilots. He has performed FAA evaluations with commercial, private, and recreational pilots for approximately 20 years.
