Elena Harlan Drewel, PhD

I have a doctoral degree in clinical child psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and I completed my pre-doctoral training at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience at Human Behavior at University of California – Los Angeles and my post-doctoral training in pediatric neuropsychology at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.

I currently practice as a pediatric neuropsychologist at the St. Luke’s Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities in Meridian, Idaho where I evaluate children and adolescents for autism spectrum disorders and other neurological conditions. I collaborate with a team of providers and support staff to provide optimal assessment and care for children and their families. My evaluations utilize standard and well-established measures and provide recommendations that are empirically supported.
