The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented change and stress. 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.  

The next Facebook Live event will focus on COVID-19: Managing Kids' Headaches and Migraines. Dr. Lindsay Elton, board-certified pediatric neurologist with Child Neurology Consultants of Austin, will address families questions such as:

  • How can I balance headache management and school/sleep schedule?
  • Can I still give acetaminophen and ibuprofen for headaches or fever?
  • What are some tips for managing a migraine at home?
  • What if my child’s migraine is severe and we need emergency care. Is it safe to go to the hospital?

Join us on April 29 at 5 p.m. on our Facebook page @ChildNeuroTX

Stay tuned for additional Facebook Life events. The next one scheduled for Wednesday, May 6 at 5 pm will focus on COVID-19: Managing ADHD at Home with pediatric neurologist, Dr. Dilip Karnik.
