Resources for Families

At Children’s National, we understand that families have many questions about their child’s condition and care. In addition to any resources your provider may give you, our online resources can also support your ongoing treatment journey.

Our goal is to maximize the quality of our patients’ lives and ease the stress on families. The Division of Neurosurgery provides many family-centered services because we understand that when a child is ill, it affects the entire family.
