Connecticut Children’s is home to several specialized neurological programs for children affected by epilepsy, genetic disorders of the brain and neuromuscular conditions.

  • In the Epilepsy Center, we see patients who suffer from seizures of all severity levels. Many pediatric patients benefit from our Ketogenic Diet Program, medical nutritional therapy that helps reduce epileptic seizures in children.
  • For children born with genetic disorders affecting brain development, neurologists in the Neurogenetics Clinic coordinate genetic testing and detailed imaging with specialists in genetics and radiology.
  • The Muscle & Nerve Clinic uses a multidisciplinary team approach in caring for an array of neuromuscular conditions and offers access to clinical trials of the most cutting-edge treatments available.
