What happens at the visit?

Firstly, we will ask about your child's medical history. Next, we will perform a neurological examination. We will take your child through a series of simple manoeuvres to test strength, coordination, sensation, reflexes etc.

Finally, we will discuss your child's condition with you. We will go over the diagnosis, explain the need for further testing, and implement a plan of action to resolve the problem.
