About Dr. Wetter

Dr. Spencer Wetter received his Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University in Clinical Psychology in the Neuropsychology Track. He has worked extensively with children and adults providing both neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapeutic treatment.  He has worked with several clinical populations including Autism, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, Sensory Processing Disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Dementia.   Dr. Wetter has dedicated his career to understanding how these disorders affect the brain and, more importantly, what can be done about how they impact people's lives.

Dr. Wetter was a professor of an advanced neuropsychology course at San Diego State University for 4 years.  He has also lectured in the neuro-psychology field covering topics such as treatment possibilities for children and adults with difficulties in the areas of attention, organization, social interaction and communication.

Dr. Wetter has had the opportunity to work  with children and adults in many settings.  He has many years of experience in a variety of environments, including Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, the San Diego VA Healthcare System, the Hallowell-West Medical Center, and the University of New Mexico Hospital.

At The Applied Neuropsychology Institute, Dr. Wetter works closely with Dr. Kristine Laverty to evaluate children from kindergarten through college with the comprehensive assessment tools, to help organize effective intervention plans and to provide beneficial referrals in the San Diego area.
