Isabelle Corriveau, Ph.D., Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Pediatric neuropsychology
Fun fact about me 

My latest passion is being part of a gypsy and oriental dance troupe. We perform regularly at seniors’ residences and through our choreography, transport them to the four corners of the world!

I love working with children and their families because 
It’s gratifying to see them evolve and flourish despite the adversity most of them face. It’s essential that we look after and care for our children since they are the citizens of tomorrow.
