Excellence in Pediatric Neuroscience, All in One Place

The Nemours Neuroscience Center at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., treats children and teens with conditions affecting the brain and behavior. Here, your child can benefit from a variety of medical specialties and therapy services all working together and providing input on neuroscience for kids of all ages.

Our center includes the expertise of:
  • neurologists — who deal with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system 
  • neurosurgeons — who specialize in surgical procedures involving the brain, spinal cord and nerves
  • developmental pediatricians — who have special expertise in neurodevelopmental (related to the brain or central nervous system) differences, as well as physical, emotional, behavioral and social development
  • physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists — who help improve mobility, functional skills and/or communication skills affected by neuromuscular conditions and brain injuries — working to strengthen those skills so kids can function as independently as possible in the home, school and community environments, and with the best quality of life
  • psychiatrists — who are medical doctors with advanced training in diagnosing and treating behavioral and mental health disorders. Psychiatrists may prescribe medication therapy when necessary.
  • psychologists — who are licensed mental health professionals with doctorate degrees, who specialize in the study of childhood development relating to behaviors and emotions. Although they don’t prescribe medications, they can help monitor the effects of medication therapy on your child and offer psychotherapy to help children and families cope.
