The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented change and stress for families particularly those with children who have neurological issues or autoimmune disorders. To help support our families during this time, we are launching a series of video broadcasts to be streamed live on Facebook about various topics that impact our patient families.  


To kick off the series,  on April 15 at 5 p.m. CT, Dr. Jeffrey Kane, medical director of Child Neurology Consultants of Austin, will provide a brief introduction about what our practice is doing to help families during this challenging time and to address some frequently asked questions. Some topics he’ll discuss:


  • I’m worried about going  to the emergency room at this time. What should I do if my child has a seizure?

  • Are children with neuroimmune or autoimmune disorders at higher risk for acquiring COVID-19? Should we continue treatments? 

  • My child has ADHD and we’re struggling with homeschooling. Do you have recommendations to keep him focused?

  •  How can I help my child with headaches during this time?

  •  

Join us on April 15 at 5 p.m. on our Facebook page @ChildNeuroTX. Or, visit the video library at ChildNeuroTX.com after April 16. 


We’ll cover other topics in future Facebook live events. Look for broadcasts on:

  • Epilepsy, Seizure Disorders and COVID-19

  • Managing Headaches and Migraines at Home

  • ADHD and Homeschooling


If you have questions you’d like to address or topics you’d like our physicians to cover, send us a message via Facebook or email your provider through the patient portal.
