Our Team

Patty Nelson

Psych Examiner

Patty joined Pediatrics Plus in 2005 where she served as Psychological Examiner and Preschool Director for the Conway Peds Plus Preschool before becoming part of the Learning and Diagnostic Center team in 2012. During that time, Patty worked hand in hand with the development team in the creation of the center. Patty’s many years of expierence and expertise played a vital role into the integration of psychological testing into the current services offered at Pediatrics Plus. In 2018, Pediatrics Plus Learning and Diagnostics became Pediatrics Plus Counseling and Diagnostics and expanded their services to include counseling. At that time, Patty was named clinical director of PPCD.

Patty earned her undergraduate degree from the University of New Orleans and Masters of School Psychology from the University of Central Arkansas. Patty has worked in various mental health settings and provided an array of services; including outpatient behavioral health counselor, psychological examiner, Director of Therapeutic Foster Care Program and Neuro Psych Tech.

Patty believes in leaving no stone unturned during the assessment process and that knowledge is power. To get a clear picture of why a child is struggling, the evaluation must look at all aspects of how a child learns and processes information. Patty enjoys diagnostics and helping families. She hopes that after an evaluation, parents know what we did, why we did it, what diagnosis was made, and leave equipped with as much information as they can so they can then be the best advocate for their child.

In her free time, Patty loves spending time with her husband of 28 years, children and grandchildren.
