In the Neurology department, we care for most of our patients through one of our subspecialty programs. Please follow the links below to learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment.
If you don’t know which program is most appropriate for your child, please contact us, and we’ll help. We may direct you to one of our programs, or we may schedule an initial appointment for your child with one of our general neurologists.
If your child has been referred to us for a diagnostic test (such as an EEG), you can contact us and we can take care of scheduling the test. You may also want to visit our Resources page for information about these tests.
Our subspecialty programs:
Patients and families are very important members of our medical team, and we will work with you and your family throughout your child’s course of treatment.
Every member of our team is specially trained to care for young patients, which means that your child will be in the best hands. Your child’s primary neurologist or pediatric neurology nurse practitioner will oversee your child’s medical care. If necessary, she will invite doctors from other medical areas at Boston Children’s Hospital onto your child’s team. You may also work with some of our nurses, all of whom are trained in child neurology.
In addition to medical care, Boston Children’s looks after your family’s physical and emotional health. We offer special services for young patients—like our Big Apple Circus Clown Care and activity rooms staffed by Child Life specialists—to keep their spirits up through the most challenging circumstances. Our support network extends beyond doctors and nurses to also include clinic facilitators, resource specialists, social workers and other knowledgeable staff. Your team is always available to help your family handle any practical concerns you may encounter.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
