• Programs and Services

    The Division of Neurology offers a wide range of specialized services for children with specific neurological conditions and their families. Experts from various specialties collaborate to develop a care plan for each child.

    Each specialty program also has a clinical research component. Patients and families are invited to participate in our research, on a voluntary basis, to help advance knowledge about their children’s diseases.
