H. Gerry Taylor, Ph.D., ABPP-CN is a pediatric neuropsychologist in the Center for Biobehavioral Health at the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. He heads an initiative in his research center to further understanding of neurodevelopmental outcomes for children with brain-related disorders. He has contributed to research on several neurodevelopmental conditions, including preterm birth, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and speech-sound disorders, as well as to clinical trials for children with sleep disorders and young adults with Down syndrome. He is also collaborating on the development of a parent-based assessment of infant development. The goals of his research are to increase knowledge of child and family consequences of these disorders and of medical and environmental factors that predict children’s development.
