Dr. Lisa Blaskey

Research Staff
Department of Radiology and Center for Autism Research

Dr. Lisa Blaskey is a clinical neuropsychologist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Center for Autism Research (CAR). Dr. Blaskey received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Michigan State University.  She completed her post-doctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Blaskey conducts diagnostic and neurocognitive evaluations for research participants for studies within the Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center, were she is a co-investigator for studies exploring electrophysiological underpinnings of language impairment in autism spectrum disorders and risk factors and precursors to ASD.  She has also served as a co-investigator and evaluator on large scale, multisite network studies, including projects funded by the NIH, CDC, and Simons Foundation.  Her clinical and research interests include neurocognitive underpinnings of autism spectrum disorders, neurocognitive phenotyping in ASD, neuropsychological assessment, and mechanisms of comorbidity in neurodevelopmental disorders. In addition to her clinical expertise in autism diagnosis, she conducts outpatient neuropsychological evaluations of children with a wide-range of complex medical and neurological conditions in the Outpatient Neuropsychology Service of CHOP’s Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She can be contacted at blaskey [at] email.chop.edu.
