Dean W. Beebe, PhD., ABPP
Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology Professor of Pediatrics Director, Neuropsychology Program Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Dean Beebe, PhD, is director of the Neuropsychology Program in the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology. He is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist with specialty expertise in the evaluation and care of children who have chronic medical and neurological conditions, as well as those with both recent and remotely-acquired brain injuries. He is on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology, co-leading the Pediatric Special Interest Group within the AACN. In these positions he has a particular interest in the development of junior-level clinical neuropsychologists to become future leaders of the field. Although his primary research interests lie at the interface of pediatric sleep medicine and clinical neuropsychology, Dr. Beebe has been principal or co-investigator on multiple NIH-funded clinical trials, both with healthy volunteers and with children who have a wide range of conditions, including lupus, cardiac transplant, brain tumor, epilepsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, lead exposure, and obstructive sleep apnea. Beyond his own research, Dr. Beebe is an associate editor of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology, and is on the editorial board for Child Neuropsychology and SLEEP. Finally, Dr. Beebe is scientific co-director of the Behavioral Core of the Clinical Translational Research Center at Cincinnati Children's, which facilitates the design and execution of scientifically-strong neuropsychological and neurodevelopmental outcome studies by other investigators across the institution.
