About Pediatric Neurology
Although children grow and develop at different rates, there are certain age-specific milestones that typically indicate that children are developing at an appropriate pace.
Healthy child development is closely tied to neurological factors. Consisting of the brain, the spinal cord and other peripheral neural elements, a child’s nervous system is a complex system that controls their body’s activities and development.
Sometimes, neurological dysfunction interrupts a child’s natural development, and a wide range of physical and physiological functions can be affected. Early diagnosis of potential issues is key.
