About Dr. McEvoy
“I am neither an optimist nor pessimist, but a possibilist.” – Max Lerner
Hi, I am Robin McEvoy. I am a Developmental Neuropsychologist practicing in Denver, Colorado. I have been evaluating children, teens and adults for over 25 years. My work encompasses a wide range of learning, developmental, behavioral and neuropsychological needs.
I believe a good evaluation is a collaborative process between myself, the child, the parents and other specialists that the parents choose to involve (teachers, therapists, etc.). In the last decade, I have expanded my evaluation model to integrate other aspects of a person’s health into understanding his or her learning needs, including diet, sensory processing, sleep habits, allergies and other health conditions.
In addition to evaluating, I love the educational process – speaking to parents, schools or other health professionals about learning, development, the educational process, and parenting in this new age where certain learning and developmental challenges are increasing in prevalence.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Orleans with a major in psychology and a minor in biology. I completed my Masters degree and my Ph.D. at the University of Houston in developmental psychology. I came to Denver in 1989 for fellowship study in neuropsychology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. I have been here ever since, both in private practice and as faculty at the University of Colorado.

About Tessa McEvoy
Tessa McEvoy is a high school freshman. Like children with dyslexia, she has struggled with her own challenges. She had a severe speech impairment that prevented her from speaking until age four and affects her articulation to this day. While her speech was delayed, her artistic interests and talents emerged early. Drawing and creating held her interest for hours even as a preschooler. She enjoys cartooning and has a small origami business. She has won recognition for her art. Her origami earrings have been carried in several stores, including the gift shop at the Denver Art Museum. You can follow her artwork on her Instagram account, World_of_Weirdo.
