Our pediatric neurologists recognize and treat the special needs of infants, children and adolescents who have epilepsy. Your child will be treated by specialists who care for hundreds of patients who have intractable (difficult-to-control) epilepsy each year.

Family support services
When a child is diagnosed with an illness, it affects every member of the family. Our center offers support groups for both parents and children who are dealing with epilepsy. In collaboration with Camp Twin Lakes, we also offer Camp Carpe Diem for patients with epilepsy and other seizure disorders.
