Pediatric Neurology

Pediatric Neurology evaluates and treats neurological (brain) conditions affecting children up to 18 years of age.

We offer careful, in-depth evaluations of children with a number of conditions. We first emphasize diagnosis, then work with the family and child on management. We pride ourselves on the quality of our care.

The conditions we treat include:

  • Autism and Asperger's syndrome
  • Brain tumors
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Developmental delay
  • Dopa-responsive dystonia
  • Epilepsy
  • Headache
  • Migraines
  • Movement disorders
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Neurodegenerative disorders/leukodystrophy
  • Neurometabolic disorders
  • Storage diseases
  • Tics/Tourette's syndrome

We have strong programs in general clinical pediatric neurology, pediatric neurometabolic and neurodegenerative disorders, and pediatric epilepsy.

A multidisciplinary approach

We work closely with neuroscience specialists and others in many programs and departments, including:
