About Dr. Hamilton

Dr. Scott Hamilton

  • I am a licensed clinical psychologist with particular specialization in comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations for children, adolescents, and young adults.
  • I have more than 25 years of experience providing comprehensive evaluations of learning, social, behavioral, and emotional concerns across the lifespan.
  • I am board certified by the American Board of School Neuropsychology. The School Neuropsychology approach integrates traditional neuropsychological assessments with educational evaluation, in order to optimize learning and behavior at school and at home.
  • I am a frequent presenter at regional and national workshops on a variety of topics related to the interface between education and understanding of brain function.
  • I have 18 years of experience in independent school leadership, including as a Principal and Assistant Head of School for Academics for a K-12 independent school for students with language-based learning disabilities and learning differences, and as Director of the learning center at a mainstream college prep preK-12 independent school in Indianapolis, IN.

I received my Doctorate and Master's degrees in clinical psychology from Indiana State University, and a B.A. in sociology from Washington and Lee University.

Dr. Hamilton meeting
When I'm not working to understand minds you'll find me with my wife Tamara and our son, a child with autism. You might also find me playing drums with my '70s cover band, recording music at home, or studying stats for the fantasy baseball league I've been in for over 35 years. My wife is a licensed clinical social worker and is an administrator and school counselor at a local independent school.
