Annie Inge, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist specializing in diagnostic evaluation and neurocognitive assessment of children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Dr. Inge has extensive experience working with children with developmental disabilities at all age and functioning levels, including infants, toddlers and preschoolers, elementary and school age, and adolescents. In her evaluations, Dr. Inge aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of your child’s current functioning, progress over time, and areas for continued growth. She views assessment at all levels (diagnostic, neurodevelopmental, neuropsychological) to serve a primary function of communicating your child’s strengths and areas of need in order to develop comprehensive treatment and educational programming to optimize learning.
Dr. Inge received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Miami in 2009 under the mentorship of Peter Mundy, Ph.D. She completed her clinical internship at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, with a primary focus on pediatric populations. She completed her research and clinical postdoctoral fellowship at Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins School of Medicine under the research mentorship of Rebecca Landa, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, during which she specialized in early detection of ASDs in high-risk infant and toddler sibling cohorts. Her research has focused on examining individual differences in child characteristics associated with motivational bias and their relations to comorbidity (e.g., anxiety, depression) and timing of diagnosis and outcomes (i.e., cognitive/language, social-emotional, attention/behavioral regulation) within children with ASDs.
Professionally, Dr. Inge worked at the Children’s National’s Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, where she provided diagnostic, developmental and neuropsychological evaluations to individuals with a diagnosis of or concerns for Autism Spectrum Disorder. She also held an academic appointment of Assistant Professor in the George Washington School of Medicine Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics and provided clinical supervision and training to graduate level and post-doctoral psychology students. In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Inge is a lecturer in the Psychology Department at The Catholic University of America; teaching both at the undergraduate and graduate level.
