Welcome to the Neurology Clinic!

What services does the clinic provide?

We care for children and youth with neurological problems like:

  • Seizures
  • Epilepsy
  • Headaches
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Developmental Delay
  • Movement Disorders
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Muscle Disorders

Whom should we call if we are worried or have questions?

  1. For any emergency, call 911. This includes emergencies involving your child’s neurological problem.
  2. Call one of our Clinic Nurses if you have a question about your child’s neurological problem. This line is not for urgent calls. Our nurses are here to give support, education, and will work to coordinate your child’s care. It may take 1 to 3 days for us to get back to you (and sometimes longer during holidays). We will return the most serious calls first.
  3. Please call your family doctor or pediatrician for everything else.
  4. We can make arrangements for your family to see a social worker, as needed. The social worker will:
  • Assess your child and family’s needs;
  • Provide the support you need;
  • Help you link with other services you may need.
