Get Answers

If your child has symptoms of a neurological condition or has been diagnosed with one, you might feel overwhelmed with questions and concerns. You are not alone. Our team of medical experts has created a guide to help answer some of the questions you may have, such as:

  • What are neurological conditions?
  • What are the latest, most advanced treatments for these conditions?
  • Can my child live a seizure-free life?
  • What treatments are available for my child’s learning disability?


While the causes of epilepsy can vary, it is generally a result of a disruption of electrical signals in the brain. Our goal is to identify what is causing your child’s seizures and to treat them effectively so your child can live a seizure-free life. We are a destination treatment facility for epilepsy — one of the largest and most comprehensive programs in the nation — offering you the most advanced diagnostics, technologies and treatments available.


Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder in which tumors grow on nerve tissues. These tumors may be harmless or may cause serious damage by pressing on nerves and other tissues. Our Neurofibromatosis Clinic is the second largest in the country, seeing more than 400 patients per year. Our physicians are highly skilled at accurately diagnosing this condition and providing treatment for the symptoms that typically occur.


We know how debilitating headaches can be and how hard their symptoms are to manage. At the Center for Child Neurology, our ultimate goal is to bring comfort and relief to children suffering from frequent headaches of any kind. Although both children and adults get headaches, their symptoms and causes may differ. Our experts work together to create a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan for your child.
