Additional Care Providers

Our team often draws upon the services and expertise of our colleagues in Genetics and Orthopedics. We use a wide array of onsite services (e.g., radiology/medical imaging, the wheelchair clinic, augmentative communications, and the orthotics and prosthetics shops) to properly diagnose and treat children with neurologic and developmental disorders.

 
Other Neuroscience Team Members

There are a number of other health professionals who may assist your child, including:

  • augmentative communications specialists — can provide support your child with a variety of communication and learning devices
  • certified hand therapists — occupational or physical therapists with advanced clinical skills in the rehabilitation of hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder conditions and injuries
  • child life specialists — work to reduce stress and anxiety while your child is in the hospital. A child life specialist can help in a variety of ways, helping your child deal with everything from getting blood drawn to missing home and coping with a diagnosis. They’ll give your child the opportunity to play, and offer comfort and the chance to talk about their feelings.
  • electroencephalogram (EEG) specialists — use EEG technology (small metal discs with thin wires on placed on your child's scalp) to study the electrical activity of the brain
  • gait specialists — use advanced technology to analyze the way your child walks so that our physicians can make the best possible recommendations for treatment
  • nurses — provide much of the day-to-day care in our hospital, closely monitoring your child’s condition and performing vital jobs like giving medicine
  • nutritionists — may help plan meals for your child based on their medical condition and needs. They can calculate the specific amount of calories and vitamins your child needs and then determine how to meet those needs. Our nutritionists also provide dietary guidance to help kids after they leave the hospital.
  • occupational therapists  — may work with your child to improve coordination, motor skills, and skills to play, function in school, and perform routine activities, like hand-eye coordination
  • orthotists — specialists in devices used to assist or modify your child’s movements. These include prefabricated or custom-made orthotics, ranging from the simple devices worn in shoes to ankle foot orthoses (AFOs), leg braces, hand and wrist splints, shoulder and elbow braces, and body braces.
  • perinatal specialists — help parents expecting babies with complex conditions to prepare for the specialized care the babies will need right after birth
  • physical therapists — may work with your child using exercises, stretches, and other techniques to improve your child’s mobility, decrease pain, and reduce any disability related to your child's condition
  • social workers — can help you and your child cope with feelings and challenges you might face, and help coordinate the health care your child needs. In addition to offering emotional support, our social workers can also help facilitate improvements your child might need at school or at home.
  • speech and language therapists — may work with your child if there are any problems speaking or swallowing. Speech therapy can help your child with the actual production of sounds, and can facilitate sign language development, if appropriate.
  • wheelchair clinic specialists — can provide support your child with mobility devices and specialized wheelchairs
