The Pediatric Movement Disorders Program at Lurie Children’s provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment of children with movement disorders. Movement disorders in children affect the speed and quality of movement leading to too much movement, too little movement or problems with balance and coordination. Children’s movement disorders can come as a result of genetic or metabolic conditions, autoimmune disorders, infections, strokes, traumatic brain injury, toxins or medications.
The Lurie Children's Difference
Our program is the only pediatric movement disorders program in the Chicago metropolitan area. It is led by one of the few pediatric movement disorders trained specialists in the country.
The multidisciplinary program combines the expertise of various movement disorders specialists, including:
If possible, please bring a video of your child’s movements, especially if these movements are not constant and might not be seen during a visit. Your child may be videotaped for clinical, educational or research purposes.
Your support is vital in helping us continue to make a difference in the lives of patients and families. Lurie Children’s relies on philanthropic funding to enhance its programs, services and research for children. To learn more, please e-mail the Ann & Robert H.
