Child Neurology

What is child neurology?

Child neurology, or pediatric neurology, is an area of medical practice focused on helping children who have health problems that affect their nervous system. These problems can arise at the time of birth or can develop as a child grows older. 

Some examples of medical needs a child neurologist might treat include:

  • Headaches
  • Developmental delays
  • Epilepsy/seizures
  • Neuropathy
  • Muscle problems
  • Congenital malformations
  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Multiple sclerosis

Dr. Hasson provides comprehensive neurological diagnostic services. He also crafts customized treatment plans to help your child function at the highest possible level. 

Some pediatric neurology needs can be resolved with treatment and can be a standalone medical matter that doesn’t require long-term care. In other cases, pediatric neurology issues can last a lifetime. When your child enters adulthood, Dr. Hasson can help them find an outstanding neurologist who focuses on adult neurological care. 

What kind of training do child neurologists have?

Doctors who choose to specialize in pediatric neurology first complete four years of medical school. From there, they spend a couple of years in hands-on training in general pediatrics, as well as several years of training in both child and adult neurology. 

Dr. Hasson chose to go beyond these requirements and completed fellowship training in neurology and clinical neurophysiology. The breadth and depth of his experience continue to shape and inform his practice to this day. 

How do child neurologists fit within my child’s larger medical team?

As a pediatric neurologist, Dr. Hasson works closely with your child’s pediatrician and extended care team. Open communication among parties is an essential part of a successful treatment plan. 

Some of the professionals who might be part of your child’s team include physical therapists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists. Other specialists might also play roles, depending on the type and extent of your child’s needs. Collaboration is the best way to achieve positive outcomes, and Dr. Hasson is proud of the relationships he has forged with other medical professionals in the greater New York City area.
