522_boybooksUpon you or your child being diagnosed with an illness, you may find that you have many questions to be answered, and you may be a little confused. You’re not alone. Across America, many people are living with the same illness. One of the best decisions you can make at this time is to educate yourself– and we are available to help you in this process. Together, we will form a partnership that will play a vital role in your or your child’s well being.

Here you can find a compilation of links to websites that can provide you with information concerning the diagnosis, the symptoms, and the various treatments. Many of these websites can direct you to online support groups so that you can correspond with people who are sharing an experience similar to yours. The more you know, the less frightening this experience will be.

At Pediatric Neurology PA, we believe that knowledge is power, and we strive to empower you and your family.
