If you or a child you care for have the symptoms of a neurologic disorder — or have received this diagnosis — we want you to know that you are not alone. One in six children is living with a neurologic diagnosis.
The good news for them, and for you, is that there is a vast network of information, resources, and support available within the child neurology community. But it can be difficult to know if the information you find, especially online, is credible and trustworthy. That’s why we have set up this portal for patients and caregivers.
In this portion of our website, we accompany you on the path that most patients and caregivers take, from the onset of symptoms to seeking and receiving a diagnosis, from choosing treatment options to finding support and managing the disorder. All the content here is written or reviewed by child neurologists so that you are getting the most reliable guidance available. Moreover, our Disorder Directory provides in-depth information and resources for some of the most common child neurologic conditions. We will update this information regularly as our volunteer child neurologists produce more content for you, so please check back as you need to. If you cannot find what you need, don’t hesitate to contact us.
