Our Services

Autism assessment

Do you notice signs of autism in your child? Early diagnosis and intervention is the key to a favourable outcome.

Seizures & Epilepsy

Seizures are frightening events for parents to witness. We evaluate febrile seizures and epilepsy to determine the best treatment option for the child.

Pediatric Headache

Frequent or severe headaches in children need to be evaluated. Recognizing the different causes of headache is the starting point in treating headaches.

Developmental Delay

Is your child meeting developmental milestones? Early assessment and referral for intervention and support services remains the best treatment plan.

Tics & Tourette Syndrome

Tics are common in childhood and often cause great distress and anxiety for the child and family. We understand the challenge and are ready to help.


School performance is often affected by ADHD. A wide range of treatment options are available.

Fully committed to your child’s neurological issues

Our Mission is to provide excellence in patient care. Our clinic provides comprehensive care for children with neurologic issues. We value and respect individuals with disabilities and believe in the potential of all children.
