What are pediatric neurological and movement disorders?
Neurological disorders are conditions that affect the brain or nervous system. Diseases of the brain, spine and nerves can make it difficult for your child to speak, swallow, breathe or learn. These disorders can also cause memory issues, inhibit your child’s senses or drastically affect your child’s mood.
Movement disorders are also neurological conditions that cause increased involuntary movements. These conditions affect your child’s muscle coordination, cause contractions and spasms and decrease control over voluntary movements.
