We know a seizure in a child can be frightening. That's why the the New Onset Seizure Clinic at Children's Hospital rapidly evaluates children who have experienced a first seizure or a seizure-like event. We usually see patients within one to two weeks of a referral placement. In many cases, the sooner we see your child, the more accurate the diagnosis can be. Your child will receive an EEG and a visit with a Neurology provider on the same day. We communicate EEG results and clinic visit details with your child’s primary care provider to help create a plan of care.
Our pediatric neurologists will bring deep experience with all types of seizures and forms of epilepsy to your child's appointment. We are also well versed in diagnosing other conditions that may mimic epilepsy.
