Through comprehensive assessment and appropriate testing, we provide diagnosis and treatment for children with neurological disorders including:
- Non-sports concussion

- Muscular dystrophy and other myopathies
- Sleep disorders
- Neurodegenerative disorders
- Selected patients with developmental delay
We provide the region's only pediatric electroencephology (EEG) and sleep evaluations. Our outpatient EEG laboratory located within our practice at the Baystate Children's Specialty Center, is the only such facility in the region specifically for children. All EEGs are performed by a pediatric EEG technician without sedation.We provide for inpatient video and ambulatory EEG monitoring, as well as vagus nerve stimulator (VNS) adjustments. Child Life Specialists are on site to make our young patients' experience as pleasant and stress free as possible.
In addition, we have the only Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinic in western Massachusetts, and provide neurologic consultations for the prenatal service at Baystate Medical Center for the evaluation of possible fetal neurologic disorders.
Five pediatric neurologists and two pediatric neurology nurses make up our team of specialists.
