Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Neurobehavior Program

Contact number | 202-476-4172

The Neurobehavior Program is a subspecialty service of Children’s Center for Neuroscience and Behavioral Medicine, which focuses upon evaluation and management of behavioral effects associated with neurologic illness. Diseases emphasized include epilepsy, movement disorders, intellectual or developmental disabilities, migraines, and other complex neurologic and medical conditions.

A comprehensive neuropsychiatric assessment is done in collaboration with neurology and neuropsychology services as necessary. The program is unique in that very few pediatric institutions offer an interdisciplinary approach to neurologic illness that includes a psychiatric perspective. We aim to treat the whole person, and tailor treatment to the individual concerns of each patient and family.

Once we identify your child’s particular needs, we work closely with you to develop an individual treatment strategy.
