Specialized neurological care for your child

At Dayton Children’s, we provide specialty care for children and adolescents with neurological conditions—everything from epilepsy and headaches to movement disorders and chronic pain. Our experienced pediatric neurology team is physician-led and includes nurses and nurse practitioners, a dietitian and medical assistants.
