Dr. Aaron Hauptman


Dr. Aaron J. Hauptman is a pediatric and adult neuropsychiatrist and associate director of Neuropsychiatry at Kennedy Krieger Institute in the Department of Psychiatry. He is an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He specializes in working with individuals and their families struggling with the emotional, behavioral and cognitive impact of neurodevelopmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries.

Dr. Hauptman’s work and teaching focus on integrating an understanding of localization-based brain function and neurodevelopment into psychiatric formulation and treatment. This is grounded in his training in general adult psychiatry, child/adolescent psychiatry and neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology. He has a particular interest in working with patients and their families struggling with neurobehavioral sequelae of cerebral palsy, epilepsy syndromes, neuro-genetic conditions, neurodegenerative diseases and neuroimmunological disorders and other acquired central nervous system injuries. These are tremendously underserved populations and, as such, Dr. Hauptman is dedicated to training the next generation of pediatric neuropsychiatrists and improving access to care for these patients and their families. Dr. Hauptman is grateful to have the opportunity to do such work with the wonderful team at Kennedy Krieger.
